VIRTUAL TOURS

Poster House is thrilled to offer a variety of virtual interactive tours and workshops over Zoom for all age groups. Tours run approximately 60 minutes and involve opportunity for a Q&A about the shows with our Master Educators. Each tour combines a live speaker, high resolution photos of posters in our shows, as well as video footage of the galleries. We also offer 90-minute programs that combine the tour with a participatory guided workshop, which simulates a virtual white board where students can interact with poster designs.

We are also happy to build custom tours around our current shows to meet your group’s needs and interests.

Please book through Explorable Places or email education@posterhouse.org to start your poster journey.

 

 

College Night Series

College Night aims to provide real resources to students who are interested in pursuing careers in art, design, and museums, with an emphasis on breaking down the pathways and barriers that can intimidate young professionals when planning for their futures. Our student programming provides professional development opportunities such as a lecture series of museum professionals across departments and throughout the world of design, as well as creative workshops, resumé reviews, and direct mentorship with our museum staffers. College Night moved online in March of 2020, and is free of charge.

Families: kids under the age of 18 are admitted free of charge.

Poster House has exhibitions and interactives designed for families with children of all ages.

A scavenger hunt ensures you see everything the museum has to offer, and participants can pick up a cool prize in the Shop.

Each exhibition is accompanied by an Activity Card, available at the Info Desk or inside each exhibition free of charge. Activities are developed with visitors ages 4–10 in mind.

Strollers are welcome at Poster House and in the galleries. Unfortunately, we cannot store strollers unless offered as part of a specific event.

Rene Wanner Library

Poster House is the new home 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.
