Visiting with the family
Whether participating in one of the Hunter’s programs or just exploring the galleries, families are always welcome at the Hunter.
Kids are always free! We ask that visitors bringing children 14 and under have one adult chaperone per five children.
Strollers and wheelchairs are available for use free of charge at Visitor Services.
Please take a moment to review the Kids’ Guidelines as a family before your visit:
Fingerprints are great for detectives, but not for art. Please do not touch paintings or sculptures. Use your eyes to explore.
Snap selfies in the permanent collection and tag #HUNTERMUSEUM. Just do it without a selfie stick. Please turn off the flash. Bright bursts of light can damage the artwork.
Food and drink are for enjoying, but not inside the galleries. Water bottles may be left in complimentary lockers along with totes & backpacks.
You may want to run or jump for joy in the museum! Please wait until you are safely outside.
Resources for Visitors on the Autism Spectrum
With a focus on sound, light, and touch, the sensory-friendly map with visitor guidelines and social narrative will assist youth on the Autism Spectrum or with sensory processing disorders in preparing for their visit and navigating the museum.
