We went to this museum for their 40th anniversary Lunar New Year festival.
The museum itself is not very large, but was packed full for this family event. The museum focused on art, art history and artifacts from Pacific-Asian countries (China, Japan, Korea, etc...). There is a beautiful courtyard with large koi fish that the kids will love checking on, and there is a gift shop with lots of fun toys and Asian items for sale.
The museum offers many family festivals throughout the year for free or reduced admission, and if you can stop by on one of those days, your kids will be in for lots of fun treats.
ALL of the activities were free when we were there & my girls enjoyed face-painting, paper-cutting, paper-folding, Chinese calligraphy, button making, balloons and more. It was a lovely afternoon treat, all for free!
If I was going on a day without a festival, I am not sure I would pay the admission price for my little ones unless they were really into Asian art and history.
