Support extraordinary experiences for all children and families!
Each year more than 350,000 people visit the Museum at West 83rd Street. But our work doesn’t stop on the Upper West Side. We also reach thousands of children and families at libraries, schools, hospitals, Head Start Centers, and homeless and domestic violence centers across the five boroughs.
- Our Shelter Program for Families in Transitional Housing helps young children develop the skills they need to be healthy and succeed in school while their mothers learn important life and job skills.
- The Museum’s Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center program offers weekly arts and creativity programs at the Pediatric Day Hospital. Children living with cancer and their families have the opportunity to explore, heal and learn through art.
- We work with New York City agencies and community-based organizations to provide free and discounted admission and memberships to under-resourced families. For many, a visit to CMOM is their first museum experience. Our Gateway to the Arts workshops and performances, always free with admission, are specifically designed to introduce children and families to the cultural riches of New York City.
