It’s Halloween-eve! Get inspired by bedazzled and costume-like artworks in the  exhibitions The Worlds We Make: Selections from the ICA Collection, Raúl de Nieves: The Treasure House of Memory, and 2021 James and Audrey Foster Prize. Take advantage of Free Admission for Families and join us for a special Halloween activity in the galleries! Explore artworks, interact with Visitor Assistants, then collect your treat!

On Saturday, October 30, museum admission is FREE for families when accompanied by kids ages 12 and under, with up to 2 adults per family. Timed tickets must be reserved online in advance. Please request your ticket at least 24 hours in advance so our team has time to process your order. Tickets requested day-of are not guaranteed. In-person and all on-site programming has currently been suspended.
