Children 12 & under are always FREE!!
It is an art museum, so it is not a big surprise that small kids are not the easiest to bring here. For my younger ones, this is just an exercise in frustration for me because they have a hard time not running, yelling, or wanting to touch. As a teenager, I loved going here. Some parents may want to preview a room before taking children under 13 through since there are some adult themes in some of the works.
Kids will find the often outrageous and totally unexplainable artwork here to be, well, mysterious. Many people do! The eclectic, always changing, never boring collections range from the cute to the controversial. Kids can roam at will through the museumto see an artistic show, including enormous multimedia sculptures, unpredictable creations of various shapes and sizes, and monochromatic paintings of nothing much at all.
