Best Chicago art museums for kids


Museum of Contemporary Art

Parents will love: The stroller tours offered the first Wednesday of every month. It's a great chance for parents to learn about art without having to try to corral energetic toddlers. Also worth noting-kids 12 and under are always free.

Kids will love: Free family days the second Saturday of every month where they can learn about contemporary art through hands-on art activities, scavenger hunts and look and learn stations. Even better, kids 12 and under eat free at Puck's on Family Day with the purchase of one adult entrée.

Don't miss: There are lots of bright colors, large pieces of art and rotating exhibits. Yes, there are areas where you might be covering up little ones' eyes if you don't want them to look at colorful paintings of private body parts, or you might decide to let the paintings just spark some interesting discussions with your family.

While you're there: Visit the nearby American Girl or LEGO stores. Plus, there are plenty of fun restaurants within walking distance.
