Field Trip Friday…part 1 of 3 August 20, 2010

Filed under: Field trips — Barefoot in Suburbia @ 1:40 pm

This week was a busy week of field trips, so I decided to just save them all for a Field Trip Friday post.  This week, we hit the Columbus Museum of Art, the Natural Play Area at the Highbanks Metropark, and the Slate Run Living Historic Farm at the Slate Run Metropark.  I’ll post each in it’s own separate post since there are quite a few pictures.

Part one is a brief recap of our trip to the Columbus Museum of Art.  The museum is undergoing major rennovations, so the majority of it is shut down.  During the rennovations, the museum is highlighting one collection at a time.  It also has free admission during most of the summer.  So we decided to take advantage of the opportunity to visit the museum for free, while not having the job of tackling a large art museum with 3 small kids. 

It turned out to be a great introduction to art museums for the kids.  The museum was featuring a collection of animal-related art, which is perfect for us!
