Looking for a way to introduce your children to art or expand their understanding of the creative process? Children who visit museums grow up cherishing the experience, and are more likely to be involved in the arts as adults. Designed to enrich your entire family’s appreciation for art, Family and Kids Club memberships grant access to one-of-a-kind events for children and exclusive experiences for parents that will set the stage for a lifetime of involvement in the arts.

Family members gain free admittance to all family programs, including Stroller Tours, Second Sunday Family ToursOpen Studios for Families, Family Tours and Workshops, as well as free Family Activity Guides for you to pick up at the museum or download online. Family members also save on tickets to family events like upcoming the Speeding Down the Spiral: An Artful Adventure book reading on March 23, where author Deborah Goodman Davis will read her Guggenheim-inspired book and illustrator Sophy Naess will hold creative workshops. One parent praised events like these for engaging her child: “The educators were so helpful and friendly. My 10 year old son was hesitant to participate at first, but they made him feel comfortable and gave him plenty of options for ways to participate.”

In addition to the Family Membership, the museum also offers the Kids Club, a premium membership level. Kids Club members get special access to hands-on workshops and curator-led tours of exhibitions. The many perks include private parties for the whole family and one-of-a-kind events, like free admission to the annual Peter & the Wolf performance by Isaac Mizrahi and the Spring Fling, which features a kid-friendly dinner and parent-friendly wine reception at The Wright restaurant. Libby Goldring, a Kids Club member, notes her family loved the last event they attended. She says, “It was so well organized and our leader was amazing with such young children. They were totally engrossed and had a wonderful time.” The next Kids Club event centers on Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe, and will teach children about Italian Futurism through unique art projects.

Family and Kids Club members also receive the benefits of a standard Guggenheim membership, including free admission to all global Guggenheim museums, discounts in museum stores, invitations to VIP openings, and more. Purchase a Family or Kids Club membership today.
