The path you take within the museum is completely up to you. You may choose to view the collection chronologically by starting in the Mansion and following the gallery numbers, or you can create your own path and freely explore to find pieces and ideas that most interest you.
Know before you go
Visiting with the family
Whether participating in one of the Hunter’s programs or just exploring the galleries, families are always welcome at the Hunter.
Kids are always free! We ask that visitors bringing children 14 and under have one adult chaperone per five children.
Strollers and wheelchairs are available for use free of charge at Visitor Services.
Please pick up a Family Fun Guide and Hunter Kids Activity Sheet at Visitor Services for your visit. Check out our Hunter Family events calendar for upcoming activities for all ages.
Please take a moment to review the Kid’s Guidelines as a family before your visit:
- Fingerprints are great for detectives, but not for art. Please do not touch paintings or sculptures. Use your eyes to explore.
- Snap selfies in the permanent collection and tag #HUNTERMUSEUM. Just do it without a selfie stick. Please turn off the flash. Bright bursts of light can damage the artwork.
- Food and drink are for enjoying, but not inside the galleries. Water bottles may be left in complimentary lockers along with totes & backpacks.
- You may want to run or jump for joy in the museum! Please wait until you are safely outside.
Family Fun Days happen on select Sundays throughout the year. Come play and enjoy the museum with hands-on activities, games, and live performances inspired by the art in our exhibits. Please see HUNTER KIDS & FAMILIES EVENTS for upcoming Family Fun Days. Children 17 and under free.
