about Young at Art Children's Museum:
Always on exhibit is the EarthWorks section that teaches about conservation and recycling. Take a passport for the Global Village and visit an architectural dig in Israel, learn origami in a Japanese house, play in an African Village (complete with about 20 drums of varying sizes), and create works of art in a Central/South American marketplace (stencils, etching, and cutting are some of the skills involved).
A variety of art-related classes are available weekdays for all ages. Details are available on the museum website.
The museum also offers birthday party packages that include invitations, hands-on art workshops, party favors, and - for an extra charge - pizza. Families supply the cake, decorations, and general party supplies.
Membership is worthwhile if you plan to go multiple times and participate in classes, and it's a must for hosting a birthday party at the museum. Family Membership is $65 per year, and includes two adults plus up to four dependent children in one household under 18 years of age. Grandparents Membership is available and includes two grandparents plus all dependent grandchildren under 18 years of age, plus two guest passes.
