Speed Museum Review: By Jeanette

Inside the Speed Art Museum, is a little place called Art Sparks that is geared towards kids. We had a chance to visit it for the first time over Memorial Weekend. We spent about 90 minutes there, but my son probably could have stayed another hour – especially since it was not too crowded. The museum is free, but Art Sparks is $5/person with 2 and under free. (Note: If you participate in the Library Summer Reading program you’ll get one family pass (up to four people) in for free.) It reminded me of history museum too with a tepee and an old time kitchen. They also have a room designed for the inner artist to paint and draw. There was a special room for preschoolers. There several different types of toys to build: plastics, magnets, and wood material. The website does a good job in describing all the activities there. I would go back again when I need to escape extreme weather. On a side note, parking was in a pay garage. There may have been other parking available, but we just parked in the garage.
