There are many places around Baltimore and Towson I love taking my kids to. Like any metro area, there are dozens of cultural, historic, and artistic centers nearby. The Walters Art Museum, for instance, is one of our family’s favorites. Admission is free, and it’s great for kids. The exhibits are fascinating, and there’s always something new to see and experience. My kids especially love the Chamber of Wonders. If you have never been to Walters, this room is called the “most unusual room” in the museum for good reason. It’s full of a number of oddities, including preserved insects and other animals, paintings, jewelry, and more. Every time we visit, my kids spend most of their time looking at every insect or piece of jewelry. They even love to see the exotic furniture from all over the world!

It features interactive art workshops and numerous other hands-on activities. The Baltimore Museum of Art is another destination my kids can’t get enough of.

I would love the chance to see it again for the first time. While that is not possible, I will continue to live vicariously through my kids as they experience new works of art. I’m looking forward to what my kids will discover on our next museum visit — and I’m excited to be a part of that discovery.

There is something truly special about walking with kids through a reverential art gallery. I always enjoy seeing what exhibits they gravitate to the most. Because we visit museums fairly often, I get to see their appreciation of art grow over time. As a parent, that’s phenomenal! Philadelphia Museum of Art. It’s one of Monet’s views of the Thames. He painted four different perspectives, but this one really stood out to me. I actually have a print of it hanging in my office. Like many of Monet’s paintings, it embodies serenity and takes you out of the fast-paced world we live in. As for me, I was introduced to one of my favorite paintings at the
