The Montclair Art Museum welcomes families! Here are some quick tips for a great experience:
- Strollers are permitted, but double wide and extra large strollers may not be permitted in certain galleries for the protection of the artwork. There will be places to park your extra large strollers during your visit.
- Large bags, especially backpacks, will not be permitted in the galleries, for the protection of the artwork. You are welcome to check them in our self-coat check during your visit.
