We’ve been there many times before, but today we had another great time at the Peabody Essex Museum. Though not officially a “children’s museum”, they try really hard to make kids welcome. And now they’ve added a fun scavenger hunt in the form of this brochure, with two tear-off cards that kids can easily hold on to.
It’s their way (it seems) of getting kids to explore more than just the first floor of the museum, where the child-oriented “Idea Studio” is located. The four year olds had fun doing the search, but the six year old with us, Lily, was really the one who could find the objects.
The shows in the kids’ room last for a year — the origami show is now over and a new one, Polar Attractions, is up. To see a cool slide show of some art (which you really won’t get to look at if you’re chasing small children), click here.
Here are more photos of what they had fun doing –
