  1. I think it wouldn’t be hard to convince kids to visit a museum. Most are inherently curious and they can get a lot of stimulation from museums. This is especially true with modern art museums since there are plenty to get them to think and be in awe!

  2. I am glad you shared this with us. It is something we worry about when taking our son to places, but you are totally right. It is okay that they don’t always understand it! – or us for that matter!

  3. So I have never much been a museum person but after reading this post I feel like I have a far better understanding of what to look for and what to discuss. This guide isn’t just for parents taking kids to museums but for anyone who doesn’t really ‘get’ museums, like me. ‘Man vs. Lactose intolerance,’ hilarious!!!

      How sweet! I hoped that people would find it that way! I love researching stuff for kids. I always think of it as Cliff Notes for the rest of us. 😉 Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I love modern art, it’s so interesting to look at. I can imagine kids would love it, as the pieces can be really fun! Your tips on stickers for different art is a great way to get them engaged!

  5. Our daughter is still a bit too young for museums, but I will definitely be exposing her to art of all types. I think it’s great to show children the many different works of art and concepts of art and to have those open conversations about it. Kids are so naturally curious that this type of experience inspires and ignites passion in children.

      It sure does! Art is really a great way to expand a child’s mind and you get to enjoy the art, too!

    Interesting! I love visiting museums and soaking myself in art. That said, the very thought of taking kids to art museums sounds odd to me! Atleast it sounded. Now, after reading your post, its probably not bad. But taking the kids to classical art museums where you check out the masterpieces of renaissance artists, I guess, kids would get bored. Modern art is still a conversation piece even for a toddler. Indeed that Man vs Lactose Intolerance is a weird piece!

      Art is a GREAT idea for kids, especially the classical art museums. It opens their minds and lets them explore and learn. Art is great for everyone!

  7. I enjoyed reading your article. I love going to museums and reading art books. It makes me happy and calm. It is like reading poems and other forms of literatures too. It feels liberating that when you see or read art, you can never be wrong or right.
    My older nephew is imaginative. I would like to bring him to the museums that you have listed. It will help to visualize a lot of things. I think when someone is exposed to different forms of art, he/she is more understanding and empathetic.

      He would have so much fun on a museum adventure with his Aunt Iza!! I hope you guys get to go. You’ll enjoy his take on things. 🙂

  8. I have always loved visiting museum and the trip to Louvre happens to be my favorite. I know its tough to convince kids but these places where you can ask too many questions and be surprised is always a great place to learn. Thanks for making it interesting and pushing on the idea that we must visit modern art museums with kids.

      The Louvre is an amazing museum. I enjoy museums even more with the kids than I did before because they always have an interesting point of view I would not have considered. Conversations there are good for the whole family. It gives the chance for kids to be heard!
