    We went to the Joslyn museum this morning for the story hour done for children. The first experience with the staff(front desk) was pleasant. As we walked upstairs to the second floor, the staff got unfriendly. We had gotten there a bit early so decided to walk around. My daughter(2) saw a picture of an animal and automatically touched it. One of the staff(black man)came over, very rudely and said don’t touch that. I completely understood. Talked to my daughter about and then continued walking through to the other exhibits. Then he started following us into each gallery. Story time started so we made our way back to gallery 1. A women came in(looked like a manager) and kept talking to this man who had been rude to us about touching the painting. They both kept looking at me and I felt very threatened and uncomfortable. As soon as story hour was done, my daughter and I got up to leave. The women followed us through every exhibit for the next 30 minutes, making me feel like I was going to do something. Worst staff experience EVER.The only thing good about the Joslyn museum is the story hour for kids as well as the outdoor pond, sculptures, scenery and free admission. I would rate the outdoor with five stars. But the indoor gets one star.

    This museum was advertised as on of the top 10 art museums for children in the nation. I brought my four children ages 9 months to 8 years. They have plenty of experience at other art museums and are able to behave appropriately and have a general appreciation of art. I was extremely disappointed in the child-friendliness of the museum! I felt like we were followed by staff and unabashedly watched. I was also disappointed in the breadth of the collection. There were a few noteworthy pieces that I could draw the children’s attention to, but I expected a lot more art! Even the temporary Lorax exhibit didn’t add greatly to the children’s experience. I feel like our local art museum is much more accesible to children – it even includes a pop art play area! The staff at the Joslyn were unhelpful and unfriendly. The man at the front desk said only “Had enough, have you?” to us as we left. The children were amused by the stream in the water feature out front. The discovery garden was also rather disappointing. Though it contained brightly colored sculptures, there was really little there to discover. I’m awfully glad that admission was free.
