On the first weekend of the month we welcome children with disabilities (ages 8-12) and their families to visit the Queens Museum from 11:30am-1:00pm for art-making activities, guided by trained museum educators and teaching artists. Each month explores a new theme and art activities. Activities on Saturday are repeated on Sunday programs. Feel free to register for multiple weekends.


Participants must be accompanied by a care partner to the museum and throughout the workshop.

What is ArtAccess?


ArtAccess initiatives at the Queens Museum provide programming for children, teens, and adults with disabilities and advance accessibility initiatives throughout the museum. Programs are designed based on participants’ needs and interests, promote social inclusion and self-determination, encourage experimentation and creative expression, and provide layers of multisensory experiences.


Art Access programs at the Queens Museum are made possible with support from the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, the Barker Welfare Foundation, and the Walter Kaner Children’s Foundation.


The Queens Museum is housed in the New York City Building, which is owned by the City of New York.


The Museum is supported, in part, by public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with Mayor Eric Adams, the Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and the New York City Council under the leadership of Speaker Adrienne E. Adams.


Major funding is generously provided by the Booth Ferris Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Jerome Foundation, Mellon Foundation, the Lambent Foundation and Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
