Play in the Clouds

Read next

This summer, give your kids the chance to play in the clouds! No, we’re not talking about a pricey air balloon ride or long plane trip–this excursion is much closer to home. Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno has created a unique, interactive installation on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The installation is called Cloud City, and it’s centered on the idea of exploring the ways that we interact with our environment. The kids will love walking through the modular, reflective structures and taking in a spectacular view of Central Park. Plus, since it’s free with museum admission (all admission is a suggested donation), you can fit it in after a relaxing day of exploring the Met.

Insider Tip: Be sure to check out the museum’s guidelines before making your plans–kids must be over age ten and they must be at least 48 inches tall and accompanied by a parent. Shoes must be rubber-soled.
