Modern museums provide adults and children with a historic view into the past, present and future. Every depository offers one or more collections of items like photography, archaeology artifacts, fine art, or wax figures. Educate yourself with exhibits on natural science, world culture, and modern paintings. Most establishments allow you to wander freely, but some offer private or group tours.

Tours are usually handled by a docent. These volunteers complete training programs teaching them everything about the items and artwork on display. They pass on their knowledge to children and adults in their tour group. Curators acquire items and then arrange them in the display area. Curators need a graduate degree that relates to the depository's specialty. For example, an art major fits a large metropolitan gallery. Metropolitan museums present paintings, sculptures and statues to the public. A history major could also work for a natural history facility.

Some museums are surrounded by gardens and parks. These establishments provide exhibits both for the indoors and outdoors. They're a great place to bring active children with shorter attention spans. If they grow tired of the quiet, indoor atmosphere, you can take them outside to run around.

Look for establishments with food courts where you can rest. Walking around becomes tiring for both adults and children. Stopping for a drink or snack helps restore energy. Stores selling souvenirs offer lasting mementos and memories of your visit.

Children love seeing and learning about new items. If your family frequents depositories, look for establishments offering permanent and temporary collections. Temporary exhibits change every month or two. Hands-on displays are enticing to all ages. Ask about these museums in your city.

American Alliance of Museums

If you want to find a museum near you, search online or in a phone book. If you plan on vacationing somewhere and want to take a look at the displays that are being showcased, finding a phone number to call and ask what galleries are being shown can help arrange your vacation schedule. Counselors can help answer questions you might have regarding the antiques, collectable items, or the artifacts the gallery has. Counselors can also help find what mobile exhibit will come to their museum in the future if you have something specific you want to find. Calling in advance can also give you information regarding admission prices and what days they're open. Scheduling a tour may also be available from certain places. The Getty and Metropolitan will have a gallery on various items that will interest many different people. Children can also enjoy looking at fine art, dinosaur bones, and learning about natural history. Education doesn't stop at children. Adults can also take advantage of the information they will learn. In order to gain a profit, galleries will change out their displays and exhibits to keep people coming back to take a look at the different ancient statues, antiques, and collectables. There will be a zero tolerance from touching many of the items on display, which is why some places will be more child friendly than others. Taking a tour with a guide is a fun way to learn interesting facts you wouldn't know if you were to look on the exhibits yourself. Guides will also be able to answer questions you may have on the different displays. This is a great way to give kids an educational experience without them even knowing it.
