Kids and Families

The Warhol offers engaging, interactive installations and activities that appeal to children and adults alike. A visitor favorite, we invite you to move and stretch with Warhol’s floating, metallic sculptures Silver Clouds. You can star in your own short film with the screen test machine, and explore tactile reproductions of Warhol’s iconic artworks. To complete your visit, make your very own Warhol-inspired art in our underground studio The Factory.

Facilities

Strollers and diaper bags are permitted on all levels of the museum; they may also be checked at the admission desk. Changing tables are located in all restrooms on floor two and on the underground level. Mothers are welcome to nurse wherever they are comfortable; we recommend the play area on the museum’s underground level, which offers soft seating and toys and books to entertain older children. Water fountains are located on floor two and on the underground level.

Artwork

Warhol’s work can be delightful and engaging for kids, with eye-popping colors, fun patterns, and familiar subjects, from Mickey Mouse to bright pink cows. While the museum does feature adult content, our staff can offer helpful tips and guidance to recommend the most family-friendly galleries during your visit.

Play Area

The museum’s underground level features a relaxed play area for families to take a break. Enjoy a library of colorful children’s books, toys, puzzles, and comfortable furnishings inspired by Warhol’s life and art. This hands-on, self-guided space is designed to let kids be kids.
