Current Kid-Friendly Exhibits:


Modigliani Unmasked (through Feb 4)

See early drawings by acclaimed sculptor Amedeo Modigliani as well as a selection of his paintings and sculptures alongside work representative of the various multicultural influences—African, Greek, Egyptian, and Khmer—that inspired the Italian-Sephardic artist during his youth in turn-of-the-century Paris. Heads composed of bold lines are accessible to all ages, and an accompanying kids’ guide encourages all ages to notice the connections between Modigliani’s drawings and his sculptures and to create line drawings of their own.

Family Programs: Sunday family programs include drop-in art workshops, storytimes and occasional family concerts.

Eat & Treats: Nosh on smoked fish platters, bagels and bialys, knishes, egg creams, babka and more Jewish-Amreican classic foods and the new in-museum outpost of iconic Lower East Side appetizing shop Russ & Daughters.
