How to Visit a Museum with Your Child

Allow Your Child to Choose the Museum You'll Visit

The first tip to get your child excited to visit a museum and learn during their summer break, is to let them choose the museum you'll be visiting for the day. For example, if your child likes to paint, or expressing themselves through art, they'll probably be more excited to see the exhibits are an art museum. Or, if they like animals, space, experiments, and things of the like, it's probable they'll want to go to a science museum instead. Whatever the case, let your child decide. If they have a bit of trouble with this, research the museums that you have nearby and know what exhibits will be showing.

Get Ready for the Day at the Museum

Now that you know where you're going, you need to take a few steps to get ready to have an enjoyable day at the museum. For starters, you need to, of course, research the museum you're going to. Find out where it is, the hours of operation, what the entrance fee is, and other similar information, so you can get to it without any problem. As for the day at the museum itself, you need to ensure that both you and your child are wearing appropriate clothing and footwear so you can be comfy. It's also recommended that you prepare some snacks, so you can replenish your energy throughout the long day out. If the museum you're visiting is outdoors, make sure to keep protected from the harsh sun (from sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and more).

Discuss the Rules for the Day

Needless to say, you don't want your child getting into trouble while they're at the museum, as it could be dangerous to them, annoying for other people, and all around unpleasant. That's why, before you step into the museum, you should discuss the rules for the day (from no yelling or running, to touching the exhibits and getting away from you). One thing to keep in mind is that, even though your child knows the rules, you still need to do a good job at keeping an eye on them and enforcing the rules appropriately when necessary.

Help Your Child Learn at the Museum

While going to the museum is a fun, bonding experience for you and your child, if you want to make the most out of your time there, you need to help them learn. To that end, here are a few tips you can put to good use. For one, you can encourage them to read all of the information on the exhibits that interest them the most. Then, at the end of the day, do a pop quiz and ask them about what they learned. If they do a good job at answering them, you can reward them with their preferred item from the gift shop.

Take Breaks Throughout Your Visit

If the museum you're going to is bigger, you should also plan for a few breaks here and there. Due to all of the excitement of spending your day out and about, you may forget that your child needs to replenish their energy and rest their feet after walking around all day. Every now and again, sit down with your child, drink water, and eat some light snacks (if permitted) to allow them to rest for a bit. While you're there, talk to them about how they're liking the experience and what they've been learning at the museum.

Visit the Children's Section

Lastly, one of the things you should do before getting to the museum is research if they have a children's section that can help your child learn more about the exhibits at the museum in a fun way. If they do, visit it with your child before you leave!
