Kids & Families

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.

Poster House hosts a Free Museum Day one Saturday per exhibition, with drop-in programs for families from 11am–1pm. The next Free Museum Day is on Saturday November 23, 2019.

School Groups

Poster House offers guided gallery tours and studio workshops for high school and college students, exploring the intersection of history, design, art, and advertising.

Our programs encourage 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 scheduled one class at a time. Tours are available all day, including between 9–11am, prior to the museum’s public hours. Pre-opening tours provide unique access to New York’s newest museum.

Poster House creates all of its educational programming with state and city standards in mind, and supports class curricula. Please contact us to organize any requirements for students with special needs.

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

Poster House cannot accommodate self-guided school group tours.

To discuss programming in development, or custom programming contact our Education Department at education@posterhouse.org.

 

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.
