Museum Of The Moving Image 40.7563° N -73.924° W

Description

The Museum now has limited in-person Behind the Screen tours for 15 people max. on Fridays. We are still offering virtual field trips and virtual media workshops! Scroll down for booking options and prices.

Museum of the Moving Image is the country's only museum dedicated to the art, history, technique, and technology of the moving image in all its forms. Embracing a wide range of subjects, from nineteenth century optical toys to the latest in digital art, the Museum explores every phase of the production, promotion, and exhibition of moving images. Students visiting the museum can take part in an interactive tour of movie making history in the core exhibition "Behind the Screen," a visit to "The Jim Henson Exhibition," and/or join a variety of multimedia workshops and screening programs.

We are thrilled to announce a full portfolio of virtual fieldtrips and virtual media workshops, adaptable to any age group and subject matter. As we renovate our building for the safety of all visitors, we are currently offering virtual educational programming only, but stay tuned to our website for updates on when we will return to offering in-person tours and workshops (www.movingimage.us/education).

If you are interested in registering for a 5 part media course, combining the online selections, please email studio@movingimage.us.
