This is a great place for people with young children, particularly if you're a young mom who has a newborn. When my 3 boys and I were painting in the hands-on art room, one of the staff members made it a point to show me how to close the "vault" door to keep everyone inside (particularly useful for a mom who is stuck in a chair nursing and has a toddler who tends to bolt). It is not a big place, but there was plenty to do to keep my 3 busy (ages ranging from 2 1/2 to 5 1/2)

Don't miss the American Impressionists exhibit. Also, there's an outstanding collection of modern sculptures made of found objects. They're beautiful and whimsical. Really terrific collection of modern pieces!

From Our Editors

Peninsula Fine Arts Center isn't a passive art museum where guests stare silently at paintings and statues. Instead, the center uses rotating exhibitions of paintings, photographs, and pottery to inspire visitors to create their own artwork. To that end, the exhibiting artists often teach in the center's Studio Art School. Classes range from single-day workshops to 10-week sessions, during which instructors might teach small groups to paint with watercolors or change out a flat pottery wheel. The instructors keep their schedule balanced, leading classes that suit all ages and skill levels. Other classes, such as Little Helping Hands Adventure in Clay, let kids and adults create artwork together.

Kids don't need to sign up for classes to try out their art skills, however. In the Hands On for Kids interactive gallery, young patrons draw on a chalkboard wall, build with blocks, and complete various projects inspired by the exhibitions.
