School Programs

Coming to MoMA gives students an opportunity to spend time with our collection of modern and contemporary art, develop close-looking and critical thinking skills, and make connections to their own lives.

During a guided visit, students will explore three to four works of art in depth through observation and discussion. These are interactive experiences in which students engage in conversation and may write, draw, or do small group work in the galleries. Before your visit, a MoMA learning specialist will contact you to discuss your goals and incorporate feedback into the planning of your visit.

We use broad themes to explore works of art. These themes provide points of entry for your students and allow MoMA educators to make connections to your curriculum. Take a look at our list of themes.

Museum visit length:

  • Kindergarten–3rd grade: 60 minutes
  • 4th–12th grade: 75 minutes

We are currently accepting reservation requests for guided school programs through Tuesday, January 31. We are accepting reservation requests for guided School Programs through Friday, June 16.
