We took a family trip to visit the Hirshhorn museum in Washington, DC. (One of my favorite museums). This was a great opportunity for me to guide my children through their understanding, interpretation and appreciation of what each artist was trying to convey through their chosen medium.
Museums are mini wonderlands filled with hidden treasures in plain sight. Whilst walking through, one could easily pass by a really inspiring experience. Here is a bit of advice for parents with toddlers and young elementary aged children, who want to appreciate a museum that is, as my middle child said, a "hands-free and not for kids, adult museum".
