A fun part of the visit was seeing the gift shop. There were so many amazing cheap children's toys that were educational. They had little spinning tops, little gardens to grow, glowing play dough, interactive toys it was amazing at the gift shop

Lots of variety here, so something for every family member. Not very expensive, either, and art museum is next door.
