Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston: Great for Kids!

This morning, my family went to the brand-new Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston (ICA) for its Family Play Date. Play Dates are offered the last Saturday of every month for families. Best of all, the performances, activities, and tours are FREE!
We knew my 6-year-old daughter, Margot, would love exploring the unique artworks but wondered how our 3-year-old twin girls would do.
We were so surprised how family-friendly and fun ICA was for our whole family. It is in a gorgeous spot overlooking Boston Harbor and offers a wonderful, bright space for kids to be in awe.
You can read more about my family's experience at ICA in the Day Trip Destination feature inside the May issue of Bay State Parent.
In the meantime, if you would like to visit ICA's next Play Date, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. - noon. This Play Date introduces children to drawing from live models, a tour of the Museum, and a special performance using dance and video by choreographer Cathy Weis.
There are also special children's offerings planned for April school vacation.
