Places – Museum for children?

When my son was younger (2-3 year) I found difficult to go with him to museums, because of the “DO NOT TOUCH “signs all over. I realised how not accessible art can be, for the small children, which just love to touch and fell everything. Now when he is older, he can listen to the story and enjoy it using his imagination. I’m still looking for exhibitions and activities, which give the children a chance to be more involved. One of my favourite art works to see with kids was Ernesto Neto in Museum Boijmans Van Beuning / Rotterdam, a while ago. Neto’s installations cry out like sirens to be touch, stroked, caressed, and entered….we all love to play with it.

and have a nice weekend…
