White walls and space-age lights make this museum a tranquil escape from the traffic outside. With four floors, the MCA is big enough to fill up a few hours and still manageable enough to fit around naps and school schedules. Exhibit halls are filled with brightly colored artwork and sculptures even young kids will enjoy. Stroller tours offered the first Wednesday of every of every month (11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.). During the summer months, outdoor Creation Stations let kids explore hands-on art, inspired by the exhibitions, for free. Creation Stations are held from 5:30-8 p.m. on Tuesdays in the summer.
