Kids & Families

Poster House invites families with children of all ages to explore our exhibitions, interactives, and amenities. All visitors under the age of 18 are always admitted free of charge.

Poster House has developed activity guides for families to self-guide through the Museum including a scavenger hunt and kid-friendly challenges within our special exhibitions. Activity guides are free of charge and are available at the reception desk as well as within the exhibitions.

Strollers are welcome at Poster House and in the galleries. Unfortunately we cannot store strollers unless specifically denoted as part of a public or family program.

Be sure to join our mailing list to be the first to know about special programs and membership opportunities for families at Poster House.

School Groups

Poster House offers guided gallery tours and studio workshops for students that explore the intersection of design, advertising, art, and history.

Our programs strive to foster students’ visual literacy and creative thinking skills, meet classroom goals, and create unforgettable museum experiences.

Poster House’s educational programming is led by master teaching artists, and groups are generally scheduled one class at a time, between 9–11am, prior to the museum’s public hours, providing unique access to New York’s newest museum.

For the 2019–2020 opening season, Poster House’s school programs are geared toward students in grades 9–12, and college and university groups.

Poster House creates all of its educational programming with state and city standards in mind, and strives to support in-school curricula. We are happy to discuss with you accommodations for students with special needs.

To learn more about our current offerings, and book a field trip or group visit, please visit our Explorable Places.

Rene Wanner Library

Poster House is the new site of the Rene Wanner Library. Wanner was a prolific Swiss poster collector and poster historian, who began amassing pieces in the late 1970s with an eye towards documenting the continued appreciation and development of posters. His incredible 3,000 volume library on posters and related subjects was donated to Poster House by the Wanner family in 2018.
