Museums offer opportunities for families to strengthen bonds as they learn and play together
The family that plays together, stays together.
There’s never a better time to prove the wisdom of this old adage than around the holidays.
With the children out of school, you might be looking for ways to keep young minds active and engaged. With grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins in town, you might be looking for ways to entertain a crowd. Or you might be looking for an opportunity to just get everyone out of the house.
Whatever your reason, consider a Museum visit this holiday break.
Discovery Place, Charlotte Nature Museum and Discovery Place KIDS all offer opportunities for families to strengthen bonds as they learn and play together.
Away from workplace demands and household distractions, family members can spend quality time with each other and become blissfully lost in the present moment as they explore, imagine, discover and create.
There’s something for all ages to enjoy at Discovery Place, whether it’s taking a never-before-seen tour of one of the world’s oldest cities, bird watching in the rainforest or building (and destroying) your very own skyscraper.
Fend off cabin fever with a trip to Charlotte Nature Museum, where you can get up close to local wildlife, walk among free-flying butterflies and let little ones go wild in the great outdoors.
Children and their grown-ups can enjoy the many benefits of play at Discovery Place KIDS. Kids can explore the world around them as they try on a firefighter’s hat or veterinarian’s stethoscope, solve problems using building blocks, cranes and conveyor belts and build imagination and fine motor skills while creating a masterpiece.
Of course, children aren’t the only ones who benefit. Interactive play with kids is also a good way for adults to relieve stress, enhance creative thinking skills and increase energy.
A family trip to the Museum can build meaningful conversations and lifelong memories as curiosity is sparked and laughter is shared. We look forward to seeing you at one of our Museums soon!
