Access the Visitor Guide to help you move around the Museum.
Talk to your kids about what they might see. At MoMA you can explore paintings, photographs, sculptures, films, design objects, performances, drawings, prints, and architectural models. Modern and contemporary artists often push the limits of what art can be—look for things that surprise you
Help protect the art. Keep at least an arm’s distance from artworks and explain to your kids why they can’t touch (even in the Sculpture Garden). If you have a child under the age of five, hold their hand in the galleries.
Use pencils to draw and sketch in the galleries. Colored pencils, crayons, and markers are not allowed. Please have adults carry supplies when walking through the galleries.
Take breaks. Alternate time in the galleries with visiting the Sculpture Garden and lounges on Floors 1, 2, and 3.
Have something to eat and drink—but not in the galleries. Visit Café 2 on the second floor for family-friendly lunch options. You can also leave the Museum to enjoy a snack in one of the courtyards nearby.
Strollers are welcome in the Museum, but for your safety they are not allowed on escalators.
Baby-changing stations are located on each floor, including private, all-gender restrooms on Floors 1, 3W, 5, and T1.
Ask for help! Visitor Engagement staff and security officers are here to answer any questions or direct you where you’d like to go.
