Tips

  • Make sure to ask a docent about Eric's youth in Germany. It's an interesting story.
  • This place is a gem! Small, but art is amazing. Staff was friendly. Kids loved the art room where they could create their own art. Auditorium and movie were great!
  • #kids#museum #art #ericcarle
  • Fantastic place to bring kids!
  • Excellent museum - feels like Europe
  • Arts and crafts room. Exhibit hall scavenger hunt
  • Amazing museum for picture book art. If you want to see familiar art in its original glory, stop in. Also there's a fantastic in-house library and art room.
  • Full price admission despite rotating gallery being closed
  • Great for kids and for adults. Beautiful building and a shop where you might spend a lot of money! Loved it.
  • Let your creative juices flow in the art room!
  • Some original/limited edition art for sale in the gift shop. One of my favorite museums to date!
  • Check out the art studio, make a project and learn something new!
  • Wonderful, magical, inspirational. Kids could have spent all afternoon in the art studio. But be aware - no on-site food outlet, so bring your own picnic.
  • Make sure to touch all the artwork.
