learning at LongHouse
"We learn best through a three-dimensional experience; we learn faster and deeper from the experience of being in the space.”
LongHouse brings together compelling art, exquisite gardens, and vital programs to offer a uniquely enriching experience. We are a dynamic, welcoming museum without walls that encourages a broad concept of learning in people of all ages.
Children and students make up 20% of our visitors and enjoy free admission to LongHouse throughout the year. Between May and October over 700 K-12 students and educators from across Long Island took part in free tours and received guest passes to encourage future visits.
School visits, scholarships, and internships continue to be at the core of our education program while we plan for enhancements to these offerings along with innovative programs and resources inspired by Jack Lenor Larsen’s passion for learning and acquiring new skills.
This informs future programs like LongHouse Talks for Teens, Maker Mentors, and more classes, workshops, and presentations in art, design, and horticulture—all devised to cultivate life skills and life-long love of learning.
