A holiday family outing, such as visiting a museum, canbe a special treat for everyone from grandparents to the youngest members ofyour family. This type of adventure gives family members an opportunity to getto know each other better, engage in meaningful conversations, and share familystories. This holiday season, strengthen your family bonds over an appreciationof art and culture at the Booth Western Art Museum.

Educational and Inspirational Family Adventure

Young children may have short attention spans, but museums can open whole new worlds of interest and boost their language development. School aged children can explore what they are learning in the classroom, filling in gaps in their curriculum and adding depth to their understanding. Older children can learn about what has inspired artists, compare and contrast ideas, and exercise their higher critical thinking skills. Parents, grandparents, and extended family members can share the journey of discovery with younger family members while learning and simultaneously developing a deeper appreciation of art themselves. In addition to viewing the paintings, sculptures, and collections, younger family members will learn from older family members how to interact with exhibits and new information which can lead to interesting conversations  and learning together as a family.
