What to expect

If you and your little artists are missing your art and culture fix, make your way to MoMA in New York City and explore some of the world's best modern art in a completely virtual setting. Take a break from your art lessons at home and explore the extraordinary exhibitions and collections of modern and contemporary art at MoMA, designed by Yoshio Taniguchi. And don't fret, we know you can't get to this Manhattan museum at the moment, but you can explore the wonders within from the comfort of your own home with the help of Google Arts & Culture!

MoMa acquired its very first pieces of artwork in 1929 in the year it started. Today, its collection contains almost 200,000 works of art from around the world spanning the last 150 years. Your art-loving kids can pick up some inspiration and ideas for their upcoming art projects here. On this virtual tour, children and adults will love exploring the collection, which includes over 150,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, architectural models and drawings, and design objects from far and wide. Discover how art around the world can be so different, with everything from Van Gogh's famous Olive Trees to intriguing contemporary art from the USA. Read the stories behind the art and explore the gallery in full with Street View.  

Learn about art history with your family and use your visit to inspire ideas for a future art lesson plan at home. Get inspired by MoMA’s collection of art and design objects and create your favourite drawing, collage, audio, and movement activities. A great art project that you can all enjoy as a family! With so much to see in this museum, this really is a 'day out' with a difference. Maybe one day, you'll be able to visit the museum in person! Discover the wonders of the world with even more free virtual art gallery tours.
