Minneapolis Institute of Arts

Today we went to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts for Mother's Day. And what a deal it was! Seriously! I was expecting to pay for parking, but that was free too (& in a ramp!) Each month they have a Free Family Fun Day that is sponsored by Target. I really think this is the way to go with young children because we were sent on a scavenger hunt which got us around to see some of the exhibits, otherwise I am not so sure Isabel would find it interesting for very long. Plus, they had a little class (both parents & kids learned from this class), got to make a tambourine, & made artwork while listening to music. Plus there was a harpist playing in one gallery & there was a jazz trip playing in the "cafe" area. Also, there was a display where you could look at & touch different parts of various instruments and there was an area that allowed kids to create art with shapes, plus there were some other things we never got to. We had a good time.
