It’s been over a year since our first visit to the Young At Art Museum here in South Florida. Last week was
intense stressful around here. Between working, preparing for a birthday party, and Valentine school festivities I was extremely exhausted by the time Sunday arrived. I was more than ready to relax and unwind a bit since I was off of work Monday & Tuesday. Typically when I am off during the week I take advantage of having free time to myself because Toodie is in school until the afternoon and it gives me a chance to get things done without any distractions. Since I was able to get some rest and run a few errands yesterday I thought it would be nice to spend a day at the museum before heading back to reality on Wednesday. Toodie has been asking me to take her to visit the Young At Art Museum again for a while now & this seemed to be the perfect time to do so. Yes, I let her play hooky from school today.. shhhhh!
I was looking forward to seeing how Toodie would interact with the various educational exhibits now that she is a year older than our last visit. It may only be one year but I notice such a change in her since she was 4. Whether it’s her growing vocabulary or attention to the smallest details, she amazes me. Everyday her mind is developing and I see her learning right in front of me. She soaks everything up like a wet sponge and I love watching her experience new things. Children are little braniacs. Even as an adult I enjoyed all of the exhibits myself and also learning new things together.
Anyhoo…. here is a look at our fun filled day at the museum! There was so much to do and we made sure to get an early start to ensure we wouldn’t miss a thing.
The Young At Heart Museum is unique in its design. It is divided into four stimulating sections- the Wonderscapes, Artscapes, Culturescapes, and Greenscapes. Each area offers activities and exhibits true to the theme. You can visit each area at your own pace and learn something new every time. It would be hard to run out of things to do here and if you already went through the whole museum, it’s even more fun to go back and spend extra time in your favorite areas. Any parent can appreciate the layout and the detail put into the exhibits. Each and every one is targeted towards children and the way the way they learn best, through hands on experiences.
If you are interested in visiting the Young At Art Museum and would like more information, stop by their website here. You can connect by liking them on Facebook where you will be the first to know about events, activities, and promotions the museum is offering. The museum also offers workshops, camp programs, a museum pre-school, and even a place to host a birthday party full of creativity. Museums are a great way for children to experience interactive learning and also a ton of fun for the whole family.
This concludes Tuesday’s Mommy ♡ Daughter Date adventure. I am thinking of making this a regular thing around here. Nothing beats time with my princess! Do you have any local gems that you enjoy taking your family to?
