Programs for Kids, Families and Scouts


There are many things for families to do together at the Frick. From handling century-old objects to discovering the personality behind a portrait, children and their accompanying adults have fun discovering history, art, and transportation together.

Many of our family programs don’t require pre-registration, so if you’re looking for something different to do, check our special drop-in programs.
