It came as a surprise to me when I visited the Children’s Museum of Boston to stumble across an art gallery. Quaint but functional, it’s still a lovely place to check out artist’s work. If you don’t want to pay the $12 to check out the exhibits (which are quite entertaining even for adults might I add) you can get a discount on Fridays for $1 during the summer. When I visited there was a stop motion film of small vinettes, paintings and mixed media.
FYI – For those of you who don’t have children be warned that they will give you a special “visitors badge”. It’s not as bad as it sounds it’s just a little sticker badge but it does feel a little weird to be labeled as someone who doesn’t have children.
