Dallas Museum of Art

Of *all* the impressive elements at the Dallas Museum of Art, perhaps the most innovative is the area they have called ‘Creative Connections‘ for all ages, but my children saw it as exactly perfect for them. They were able to sit and sketch a sculpture, make abstract art (or actually even rework and build upon other pieces that have been left there on display), the list goes on.

The boys *loved* it. Know what music to a museum-mom is? “Can we come back the next time we are in Dallas? Pllllleeeeeasssseee???” Oh yes, definitely.
