Visiting Toolkit for Families

Bringing your family to the Museum? Wondering where to start? Check out the links in this Visiting Toolkit for Families to get the inside scoop on parking, bringing a stroller, how to talk to your kids about Museum Manners, and games you can play when you get here!

Look! Discover! Create! Family Experiences

Visit anytime or join a scheduled family program. From gallery experiences to sketching to family packs, Museum programs and resources are designed to create a unique, engaging experience for the entire family.

Classes and Workshops

Classes and workshops at the MFAH are designed to offer an in-depth learning experience for the entire family. Homeschool Family Workshops provide curriculum-linked gallery experiences and studio projects for homeschool families in the Houston area. The Glassell Junior School, on the MFAH campus, offers art instruction for children ages 3 to 18. Year-round classes and workshops at Glassell run the gamut of creativity—from multimedia & cartooning to miniatures & wearable art.

Art at Home

Looking to extend your Museum visit at home? Look at art from home and find a wealth of online information about works of art in the MFAH collection that you can enjoy with your family.
