Families are an integral part of MoAD’s mission.
We have something for everyone — and we can’t wait to welcome you. Our elevator makes it easier to move strollers and kids between floors, and our staff is happy to answer questions during your visit.
Start your visit with a Family Passport
A Family Passport helps families explore the museum and exhibitions together. It contains a museum guide, colored pencils, and more. Check one out at the Visitor Service Center when you arrive.
For younger children
Bino & Fino — a Nigerian Cartoon
Bino and Fino is an African educational cartoon about a brother and sister who live in a modern day city in sub- Saharan Africa. Perfect for children ages 3 to 6, each episode features Bino and Fino learning things about the world with the help of their friend Zeena the Magic Butterfly. The cartoon is created by Adamu Waziri, a Nigerian animator, and is produced by his Nigerian based animation company EVCL.
See the cartoons in the Freedom Theatre on MoAD’s second floor.
For older children
Toussaint: The Heartbeat of Freedom
The Haitian Revolution (1791–1804) represents the only successful slave revolution in history, a movement that gave birth to universal human rights. It created the world’s first Black republic, traumatized Southern planters, inspired U.S. Blacks, and invigorated anti-slavery activists around the world. At its helm was General Toussaint Louverture, an ex-slave admired by allies and enemies alike, a man who risked it all to lead an army of slaves that would fight the French, British, and Spanish empires for twelve years.
Older children may enjoy viewing this documentary film in the Freedom Theatre on MoAD’s second floor.
