Sammy wiggled to get down from my arms as we walked into the first room of the Massachusetts Fine Art Museum. She walked right over to a huge sculpture, stopped just a few feet away… looked up, dropped open her mouth and let out an exagerated. ” Ooooh!” (which sounds a lot like a long drawn out WOW, but with a really funky accent.
Sammy continued, for the next hour an half, to run up to paintings and artwork big and small…stop for a moment, look and then move onto the next. And surprisingly she was really looking at the artwork…I mean she found every single portrait of a dog painted or sculpted throughout the museum!
We walked through the MFA at record speed…I think in just less than 2 hours. We did avoid some of the furniture rooms as Sammy wanted to sit on the chaise lounge and tiny little upholstered seats. It wasn’t until the last 10-15 minutes that she tugged at my jeans and asked to be up.
Tired and a little worn out Sammy climbed into her stroller. I handed her a bottle of milk…and if it weren’t for the cold air and occasional flurries outside, I think she would have fallen asleep on our short walk home. We will have to go back! We both loved it!
Note: I found out during our visit that every first and third Monday of each month is stroller day for babies and toddlers. The museum also has some fun activities for I would say 3 or 4 years and up. You can find out more info here.
The coolest bean bag chairs ever!Sammy only stopped to rest for a brief moment to watch all the people walking outside…and then she was off again running from painting to painting.
