Should I really bring my kid to an art museum?
Absolutely! Visiting museums and participating in art adventures helps improve literacy and ultimately supports overall success in school and life. Discovering artwork together is an easy and fun way to spend quality time with loved ones. Art museums visits benefit any and every age, including the earliest learners. The Rockwell offers many ways to get your family engaged with the art on our walls.
