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.
Family Fun Day: Magical Landscapes
Join us for a day of big, messy outdoor art! Rivers, hills, skies and sunsets—what wonderful or wacky world can you dream up? Join in creating our giant landscape, then paint a place of your own (complete with plants and animals to fill it) to take home.

|A self-guided experience for families to get moving, learn and have fun!
Families are invited to gallop, waddle, waggle, and prance across the Frick’s “fetchingly” beautiful grounds while learning about the pets that lived at Clayton.
Stop at the Visitor Center for our new Pet Tales at the Frick walking guide and enjoy an animal-themed jaunt meant for people! Go at your own pace and take yourself—and your family—for a playful walk!
Summertime is fun time at Frick, inspired by the collections and exhibitions set in our beautiful grounds. Kids return year after year to our summer camps to discover new worlds, expand their creativity and make lasting friendships.
