I spent half my childhood being dragged through museums, which means my kids need the same experience. They're luckier than I was because museums are so much cooler and more interactive than when we were kids!
The best museums for kids have exhibits that inspire wonder, indulge their curiosity, and teach them something new without being stuffy. While there are thousands of museums all over the world, I've narrowed our picks down to just museums in the U.S. Lots of these best museums for kids even offer free admission! Definitely check out each museum's website for current exhibits and to plan your visit; sometimes hours may vary or there might be special events that you won't want to miss.
