Museum of the Moving Image is a great destination for families. Year-round, families are invited to explore the Museum’s hands-on core exhibition Behind the Screen, which features over 1,400 artifacts, from mind-bending optical toys to a real Yoda from the Star Wars films, as well as an array of interactive experiences in which families can make stop-motion animations, add sound effects and music to famous movie scenes, and star in a personalized flipbook.

During Spring Recess for New York City public schools, April 14 through 22, the Museum is open every day and will be offering weekday matinees of The Lego Movie (in 3-D) and twice daily Lego Animation workshops.

Take advantage of our special family memberships which offer unlimited admission to the Museum, reservation privileges, exclusive discounts on children’s birthday parties and much more!
