Programs for Kids, Families and Scouts
There are many things for families to do together at the Frick. From handling century-old objects to discovering the personality behind a portrait, children and their accompanying adults have fun discovering history, art, and transportation together.Many of our family programs don’t require pre-registration, so if you’re looking for something different to do, check our special drop-in programs.
Family Fun Day: Castles and Kingdoms
Travel back to the time of tapestries and the days of dragons. Design a bold shield, paint some colorful pennants or weave a wall-hanging. Our colossal castle awaits your creative touch!
Family Fun Day: Things That Fly
The sky’s the limit as you create birds, kites, rockets, UFOs, and whatever flying things you can think of. No wings or pilot’s license necessary—just bring your imagination and enthusiasm!
UPMC Health Plan Let's Move Family Fun Day
Play old-fashioned games on our lovely, level lawns. Take a turn at badminton, sack racing, the obstacle course, and giant Twister, to name a few. Unplug and join in this day of lively outdoor activity.
Girl Scout Programs
A self-guided experience for families to get moving,
learn and have fun!
Families are invited to gallop, waddle, waggle, and prance across the Frick’s “fetchingly” beautiful grounds while learning about the pets that lived at Clayton.
Stop at the Visitor Center for our new Pet Tales at the Frick walking guide and enjoy an animal-themed jaunt meant for people! Go at your own pace and take yourself—and your family—for a playful walk!
Summertime is fun time at Frick, inspired by the collections and exhibitions set in our beautiful grounds. Kids return year after year to our summer camps to discover new worlds, expand their creativity and make lasting friendships.
