Before and after kids: Art museums.

Over the summer, the Nerd and I tried to plan more family adventures that are fun and free educational. Well, maybe also free.

One of our favorites was, believe it or not, art museums. While many charge admission, a local university has two that are free and open to the public year-round. We packed up the minions and made our way to two fantastic museums.

It was there that we learned that visiting an art gallery is just a *little* different when you have small children in tow. Without kids, you’re an instant art critic. With them, well, read on.


About Mediocre Mom

I am a wife to the man who was made for me, and mom to three amazing girls: Punkin is eight, Goo is four, and Smush is two. I'm a Christian, a science geek, and completely addicted to coffee. Trying to stay sane one day at a time. Lowering the bar for moms everywhere.

  1. I love this it is so true, last year we went on a field trip to the new britain museum of american art with dan and luke and it was a nightmare, i don’t think any of the parents with little kids had fun. We were constantly telling them not to touch, and there were specific pieces that were worse than others, one exhibit even had a hockey puck on the floor that more than one kid played with 🙂

  2. I love your writing style- your posts are practical with a smattering of hilarity 🙂 You Tube – Tales From the Driver’s Seat

  3. As a kid, I was okay going to museums. It was only when my parents wanted to hike that my two brothers and I would draw the line. No happy faces when hiking.


Your two cents.
