Kids and Families

There's so much to discover!

Kids and families learn from "the real thing" at The Huntington, be it a personal letter in George Washington's own handwriting, a priceless 18th century cabinet with secret compartments, or a strange carnivorous plant that eats bugs. Youth and Family Programs include workshops, preschool series, weekend festivals, and even week-long day camps.
