Family Visits

The Harvard Art Museums welcomes families of all ages. Kids under 18 can visit for free. When you stop by our admissions desk, ask an attendant for complimentary sketchbooks and pencils to accompany your visit to the galleries. Jenny’s Cafe, open from 10am to 4pm daily, offers a kid-friendly menu.

For families with small children, we are happy to provide compact strollers at the admissions desk (our galleries can’t accommodate oversized or jogger strollers). We kindly ask that kids are reminded of our “look but don’t touch” rule in engaging with art. Nursing mothers are free to nurse wherever they feel most comfortable, and all of our bathrooms are equipped with changing tables. For privacy, a single-use bathroom is on Level B1.
