Going to the Museum with Toddlers in Tow

Updated: Jan 9, 2019




The sun is not yet up as my three-year-old runs into my room. He hands me Little Bear and Marshall to give me the false hope that this morning he might actually fall back to asleep then climbs up into the bed and takes over my pillow before bouncing up and down. “What we doing today, Mommy?”

I look up at him and admit defeat.

“I was thinking we could go to the museum.”

“Yay!” He hops back off the bed and b-lines for the door. “Ready!” he calls as he bounds down the stairs.

When I first had a child I was pretty nervous about taking him to art galleries or museums or anything that involved walking around the halls and staring at exhibits. But I loved going to them and I didn’t want to give that up.

Now that I’m two kids and countless museum and art gallery trips in, I thought I’d share what I’ve learned to make the experience enjoyable for everyone.
