Youth + Family

A trip to The Wolfsonian is full of discovery, exploration, and fun!

Visiting with Your Family

Through our Discovering Design initiative, we offer a variety of experiences for kids and their families to think like designers, explore the galleries, and engage in conversations about art and design:

  • Free Family Days

    Bring your #WolfCubs to learn and play with local artists on select Saturdays. Every Free Family Day explores a different theme and includes a hands-on art-making activity plus a story-time reading, gallery tour, or game. Check our calendar for upcoming events.

  • Gallery Guides

    Take a self-guided tour of our permanent collection! Whether you’re looking for creative creatures or becoming building detectives, each family gallery guide leads to unexpected discoveries. Ask our friendly visitor services staff for the latest guide when you visit.

Visiting with Your Class

We welcome teachers and students for interactive class field trips and special programs tailored just for K–12 audiences! Unlock the mystery and wonder of modern-age art and design through:

  • K–12 Field Trips

    Class tours can be teacher-guided or led by a Wolfsonian educator, and are always free of charge. Request a tour by filling out the K–12 form on our Tours page.

  • Zines for Progress

    An educational initiative for Miami-Dade County language arts, history, and visual arts classes in grades 9–12, Zines for Progress challenges teens to create their own zines that confront issues facing their communities. The program engages students in critical thinking and social activism while bolstering art-making and writing skills.

    Thanks to generous support from Wells Fargo, this program is 100% free for all participating schools. View the accomplishments of past student participants at zines.wolfsonian.org.
