Art Museums that Incorporate Interactive Exhibitions

I like art museums, especially those with interactive spaces for kids. My previous post introduced 14 ways to engage kids at an art museum, but some museums take on this challenge themselves by providing art trading cards, scavenger hunts, family backpacks, children’s audio tours, or family guides. It is always worth asking museum staff about special resources and activities created specifically for families visiting the museum.

There are a number of art museums that have incorporated entire galleries of interactive experiences for kids and families. Here are interactive art museum spaces I have visited.

  • Dayton Art Institute (Ohio) – Experiencenter
  • Getty Center (Los Angeles, California) – Family Room
  • Mint Museum Uptown (Charlotte, North Carolina) – Lewis Family Gallery
  • Santa Barbara Museum of Art (California) – Children’s Gallery
  • Skirball Cultural Center (Los Angeles, California) – Noah’s Ark

If visiting an art museum is not in your foreseeable future, check out one of these interactive art museum websites for kids.
