Cultural destinations often fall into one of two camps: totally for kids or not really at all for kids. We found a slew of museums that cater to everyone, offering programming that is sure to educate and entertain kids and parents alike. Start your exploration by flipping through this slideshow of the country’s best museums to bring the kids!

Shrink the Museum (Not the Kids) – Tucson, Az

The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures’ permanent collections boast over 400 miniature houses and room boxes to explore. Themes cover history (one miniature dates back to 1775), enchantment, and exploration, and span cultures and countries. Their Kids Create Family Fun Program runs every second Saturday of the month. School-age kids get to make their own miniatures! Remaining programs for 2017 include “Mini Monster” and “Tiny Elf Fairy.”
