This Sunday is the 2018 Super Museum Sunday. Here are some quick tips on how to make this a special day for your children.

When children first visit an art museum, the size of the building and the number of pictures can be overwhelming.  Go for a short length of time, talk in advance, and keep the interest high by asking questions like:

  • How does the person in this picture feel?
  • Would you like to live at this place in the picture?
  • What person is the center of attention?
  • What colors do you like best?
  • How many animals are in the pictures in this room?
  • Are big pictures better than little ones?

When leaving, ask your child what picture they like the best.  Then sit down and look at it once again for a few minutes.  Then ask them again what makes it special to them.

What other things would you suggest for your visit to the museum?
