I took my children (ages 5 and 4months) to the museum at my son's request. He's a big fan of Little Einstein's, where a famous work of art is featured each episode. I was a little unsure about how "into it" he would be once we were there, but I was pleasantly surprised! He loved it!
We loved seeing the Van Gogh's, the Picasso's, the Matisse's, and the Warhol's because he recognized all those names! He also enjoyed the exhibits which were obviously geared toward children, like the ancient Asian hairstyle station. He was most fascinated with the REAL MUMMY! He made me walk past it twice! He also thought the silver exhibit was really neat!
We had lunch at the cafe, and the wait staff was extremely friendly, and it was very pleasant sitting out on the patio.
My son did start to lose interest toward the end (which is OK, he is just 5!), but he perked back up when we hit the gift shop, where he got to decide between some really cute artistic souvenirs. I was also happy to see that a purchase of $15 or more made your parking free!
It was a very special experience!
