When the weather is not the greatest……visit a museum!
This time of year is perfect for indoor activities like visiting a museum. A day at a museum will be educational and enjoyable for all family members.
Museums serve as keepers of our cultural history. They preserve the memories of different cultures and individuals, their handmade objects, art works and historical documents. Exhibits help us learn about our past, understand the present and gives us insight to the future.
Whether you and your children are interested in art, music, history, natural history, science, technology, or specific areas such as sports, jewelry, dolls or flight there is a museum in the greater Seattle area for you.
Don’t forget the numerous art galleries throughout the city. They are great places to see the world through the eyes of various artists. Local galleries display paintings, sculptures, glass works. Some may provide demonstrations and/or classes. You might even meet the artists themselves!
Contact some of our local museums and sign up for their mailing lists. You must might find a few exhibits for the entire family to enjoy.
Have a Good Weekend!
