VIRTUAL + IN PERSON TOURS
Poster House is thrilled to offer in-person and virtual interactive tours for all age groups.
Tours run approximately 60 minutes and involve the opportunity for a Q&A about the shows with our Lead Educators. Each tour combines a live speaker, high-resolution photos of posters in our shows, as well as video footage of the galleries. We also offer 90-minute programs that combine the tour with a participatory guided workshop, which simulates a virtual whiteboard where students can interact with poster designs for virtual programs and in person tours will use our Education Workshop.

PH x College (formerly College Night) aims to provide real resources to students who are interested in pursuing careers in art, design, and museums, with an emphasis on breaking down the pathways and barriers that can intimidate young professionals when planning for their futures. Our student programming provides professional development opportunities such as a lecture series of museum professionals across departments and throughout the world of design, as well as creative workshops, resumé reviews, and direct mentorship with our museum staffers.

Poster House is the new home of the Rene Wanner Library. Wanner was a prolific Swiss poster collector and poster historian, who began amassing pieces in the late 1970s with an eye towards documenting the continued appreciation and development of posters. His incredible 3,000 volume library on posters and related subjects was donated to Poster House by the Wanner family in 2018.
