I have loved art for as long as I can remember. While I haven’t always been very adept at creating my own art, I have loved looking at and studying art.
It’s probably not surprising that this also translated into a love of art museums. Despite this, because my children weren’t particularly interested in art and I was afraid of their boredom, I resisted taking them to an art museum. Even though we were within easy driving distance of a large art museum, I kept skipping out on this amazing field trip opportunity.
Maybe you’ve resisted art museums for some of the same reasons. After taking my children to an art museum, I would urge you to reconsider as well.
You just might be surprised by what happens, if it’s anything like our art museum experience.
