THE DALLAS MUSEUM OF ART
Did you know the Dallas Museum of Art has free admission?! Free!!! Did you know that every first Tuesday of the month is Toddler Tuesday?! The DMA is a fascinating place to visit any given day of the week but is especially exciting on Toddler Tuesday. Each month features a different theme and a variety of different activities to go with that theme. You can check out this upcoming month’s activities here.
When you enter the children’s area you will find several interactive stations which encourage creativity. There are stations for children of all ages including reading, drawing, sculpture making and problem solving.
For the tiny tots, there is a room just for them called Arturo’s Nest. This spot is perfectly equipped with toddler friendly nature themed learning toys and books. There is a studio where art classes are held and kids can make their own works of art, this is one of my favorite memories from my own childhood !
When you have had enough kiddie fun, be sure to get your cardio in and check out the rest of the museum. There is always something new to see, it’s a great place to go for a walk if the weather, is hot, rainy or cold and the DMA is nice for a change of scenery. I used to take Dex here for walks all the time when he was a new born and I just needed to get out of the house.
When the weather is nice out, the DMA has beautiful lawns and sculpture gardens, I remember often going there as a child and running around outside having so much fun, and now I get to share that with my child.
I hope you get a chance check it our and create those precious memories with your children too!
