No running, no poking and no touching of the walls and hardware. We are excited to welcome kids of all ages to experience ARTECHOUSE, however, we request a higher and very hands-on supervision from parents/adults coming in with children under the age of 6. Though most of our installations are very interactive, not all installations are meant to be touched, rather moved with and interacted at a distance. They can be more fragile than they seem.

Photographs, film, or videotape may not be taken of individuals without their express permission or, in the case of minors, without the express written permission of parents or legal guardians.
