We found a slew of museums that cater to everyone, offering programming that is sure to educate and entertain kids and parents alike.

Make Art Not War – New Britain, Ct

A fine art showcase through and through, the New Britain Museum of American Art offers an impressive menu of options for adults and kids. Programming is led by established artists and includes Art Explorers (ages 6-8), as well as Art Start for Preschoolers (ages 3-5)—and drop-in students are welcome at both! While the kids are busy making art inspired by a piece in the museum, you can tour American masterpieces.
