Kids & Families


It’s never too early to experience an art museum!

The Museum makes every effort to provide an experience that is both fun and educational for young visitors. In 1920, the Museum’s founder August Heckscher dedicated the museum and surrounding park to the community of Huntington, “especially the children.” To this day, our setting within Heckscher Park is a wonderful way to extend your visit before or after your museum experience! Learn more about Heckscher Park

Our current offerings for young visitors include:

  • Digital Action Painting (in the Museum)
  • Family Activity Guides (in the Museum)
  • Create Your Own Activity Station (in the Museum)
  • Share What Home Means to You (in the Museum)
  • H@H Kids Art Activity Videos (Virtual)

There are many Kids and Families Events throughout the year as well!
