The modern is a great place for a field trip because there is such a variety of things to see. Starting outside with with the giant metal sculpture, children can explore art from the outside and the inside. They can also explore sound and the principles of sound reverberation. There are actually lots of sculptures scattered around outside the building that are fun for kids to see. Then inside the building, the first thing you'll notice is the gorgeous and really interesting architecture made of concrete, stone, glass, and even water. After all of that there's still the exhibits to see! Several of the pieces in their permanent exhibit are favorites of mine. The only warning that I'll give is that (in line with some forms of modern art) you might want to call ahead to see if there are any current exhibits with a PG rating due to nudity, violence, or possible offensive subject matter. Though if there is such an exhibit there, the museum is very good about giving fair warning, posting signs, and placing the exhibit in an area that is not visible from other areas of the museum. The Modern is such an interesting place.
The cost keeps us from going very often but there are free times on Wednesdays and Sunday afternoons, I think. Call ahead to check it out.
