3rd Saturday Activities are Great!. activities and it was fabulous. They have great art projects to involve the kids in creation not just observation. When touring the museum, my two year old son was a bit rowdy, but he loved the art project. I love the cultural exposure he gained even though he is young. You can see pics and a more detailed review on the Sassy scoops site. I'd like to go back once the little one is a bit older and try one of the family tour backpacks.
When to do with your kids to this place!. Such a beautiful museum, every time I come I wish my kids were a little older so they could love it even more. But I feel like if I want them to appreciate it I need to start them off young! This last time I learned that the Museum of was actually Family Friendly which if I have been honest the past times I have been it has NOT been at all. I learned about the 3rd Saturday Art Projects for kids and also the family friendly exhibits with the fun interactive backpacks you can bring along! Although I think a lot more of the employees (not that ones we worked with that day, they were fabulous) need to become more family friends and appreciate parents trying to bring their children in. We try to keep them quiet, out of harms way, we try! I will be back though! I want my girls to love the arts, to learn from them, appreciate them and they already are starting too. The Utah Museum of Fine Arts IS the place to do this. I actually posted a full review with tons of pictures at Sassy Scoops Utah site if that helps you decide!
More a history museum than a contemporary gallery, this institution boasts the city's largest art collection..
The Utah Museum of Fine Arts offers a collection of more than 15,000 works from all over the world, spanning many styles and periods. The 74,000-square-foot Marcia and John Price Museum Building (completed June 2001) houses more than 20 galleries. The interior is spacious, warm and elegant, with a beautiful upper colonnade and earth-toned walls. Besides the galleries, patrons wander through the bookstore, study center, sculpture terrace and Fine Arts Cafe.
In addition to the rotating series of collections housed at the museum, UMFA also dedicates space to traveling exhibits. You may find anything from ancient African masks to a display of contemporary American women's photography.
