The museum is opening and we have changed our protocols. Learn more about our health and safety measures.

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.

Please note: Because we want all members of our community to stay safe and healthy during these times, some hands-on activities are temporarily closed or have been removed to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Please inquire with our admission desk staff about family-friendly alternatives at the time of your visit.

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 seating area on the museum’s underground level, which offers soft seating and a safe area for children to explore. 

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.

Since people are going to be living longer and getting older, they’ll just have to learn how to be babies longer. I think that’s what’s happening now. Some kids I know personally are staying babies longer.
