The Rubin is transforming. Read important updates from our Executive Director.

Family Programs at the Rubin Museum are shared art experiences for children and their adult companions. Inspired by the Museum’s art collection and exhibitions, these programs foster the development of lifelong learning skills through gallery explorations, open-ended discussions, demonstrations, interpretive arts, crafts, and individual and collaborative projects.

We are excited to welcome you to in-person Family Sundays this fall in our new Mandala Lab! You can also still make art whenever and wherever you want with our Art from Home projects.
