This is one of my favorite activities to do with my Children. We visit the Museum many times throughout the year. Most of our visits are spent in "Transformations." There are so may hands on activities for kids. The "Transformations" area is definitely geared for younger kids. My 7yr old still loves it. But kids much older than that would probably get more enjoyment from the rest of the museum.

There are also several hands on activities throughout the museum, such as a felt board where kids can make their own still lifes near actual still life paintings and another area where they can use geometric shapes to build quilt blocks.

You can also ask for prints of works of art found in the museum to borrow for inspiration while you are there. We did this on our last visit. My boys made their own "masterpieces" with marker inspired by the prints.
