Boston’s Best Art Exhibits For Kids
" It can be tricky to get kids to enjoy art museums. Museums can seem dry and boring, but there are actually quite a few captivating, interactive and family-friendly exhibits throughout Boston and the suburbs. From Ancient Egypt, to illustrations, to sound and video, kids will love these five exhibits – especially because two of the exhibits feature an interactive studio where they can create their own art as well!

Permanent Exhibit Kids love going to Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts to see the mummies. Art is a bit more intriguing and kid-enticing when Ancient Egyptian (possibly haunted) tombs are involved. Boston is home to one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of art from the Great Pyramids of Giza and the surrounding area. Since elementary school children usually do a unit on Ancient Egypt, they are sure to enjoy seeing the artifacts in real life.
