Best for:
1) Fine Arts/Art Appreciation: visiting artists in residence and learning directly from them, getting inspired
2) Science and technology: learning how art is made, materials used
3) Language arts: providing materials for journaling or essays
4) Geography: learning about countries, cultures as influences in art

Peak age of enjoyment: 7-100+ y.o.

Pros: free, opportunities for fascinating discussions with artists in residence, very friendly and welcoming staff, fun and unique traveling exhbits

Cons: very, very limited parking in the area

Cautions: adult supervision mandatory, carefully check open hours and if you want to see a particular artist find out when s/he is in residence working
