The New Children’s Museum: A Short Drive to Adventure
The New Children’s Museum in San Diego is a straight shot from Carlsbad on Interstate 5. A 25 minute drive takes you to a place like no other your kids have experienced before. Your children will beg to go back again and again.
The museum commissions modern artists to craft interactive exhibits that stimulate creativity and hone observational skills. Pieces showcased in the exhibits are designed for children to be part of the art…to touch, manipulate, and create. The New Children’s Museum opened its doors in 2008 (at its current location, 200 West Island Avenue) the original museum opened in La Jolla in 1983. Over the years there have been several themed exhibits, Childsplay, Animal art, TRASH, and the current exhibit, Feast.
“Think, play and create” is The New Children’s Museum mantra. Their mission is, “…to stimulate imagination, creativity, and critical thinking in children and families through inventive and engaging experiences with contemporary art”
The artwork in the newest exhibit is simply genius. Every piece is centered on food. It is a fun and completely interactive way for children to experience art, learn about food, the environment, and health (to name just a few).
The New children’s Museum is a great way to escape the day to day and expose your children to new and exciting things.
