The museum is a beautiful old building and they have activities to keep kids engaged while they walk around. If the weather is nice, spend time walking the gardens and grounds. A favorite place of mine!

The interior and exterior structure and the grounds are worth looking at, not to mention the art (sadly, one piece that we really liked was missing the name and no one knew what it was). The ladies at the front were the only poor part...More

Go by all means. Great art exhibits in and out of the museum. Stroll the grounds and enjoy nature and the outdoor sculptors.

I suspect kids would not appreciate most or all of the museum exhibits. The park surrounding the museum has some nice large outdoor sculptures and people do picnic on the lawn at times, but this, too, is not much for kids.
