If you want to introduce your kids to creativity and expression, look no further than the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Florida!
This museum has been inspiring family's since 1965, and has not only a permanent collection for you to enjoy, but rotating exhibits and even kids events. It really is a family museum!
The permanent collection covers a range of art, in all forms, and from all over the world. You can take the family on a journey through Europe, America, Africa, Asia, and even explore art mediums such as photography and Ancient Western art.
As you walk around, you'll see that art isn't just paintings! Art can come in all forms - including pottery and sculpture, so it's a great way for kids to see how they can express themselves.
The younger kids will enjoy seeing all the colors and patterns, and the older kids will be able to appreciate the techniques and meaning behind each piece.
The temporary exhibits are also worth keeping an eye on, so you don't miss out. They introduce kids to various cultures around the world, and throughout history.
The Museum of Fine Arts isn't just admiring art, either. The museum has great family events, like Kidding Around Yoga on the first and third Saturday of the month - perfect for the entire family!
They also hold Super Special Saturdays on the third Saturday of the month where there are family events to be enjoyed. Take on a treasure hunt, or get stuck into the arts and crafts - there's no better way to enjoy an art museum than create art too!
A fascinating experience for the whole family, and one that will take you deep into that amazing art world!
