Family Activities

Family Programs at the National Gallery of Art are based on a philosophy of slowing down, focusing on one work of art, developing observation and thinking skills, inspiring curiosity and wonder, and fostering collaboration between children and adults.  Many of the programs are age-specific, while others are designed for a broader age range.  Please note that some programs require advance registration while others have onsite sign-in on the date of the program.  All Family Programs are free, and participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.
