I took my stepdaughter to the closest art museum. It’s free entry, you just have to sign up ahead of time on Eventbrite due to COVID. They were very cautious and careful. Masks are required. There are hand sanitizer stations everywhere. A guy followed us down the stairs, disinfecting the railing after us…
Schools were closed Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday this week because of illness. COVID and flu have been rampant apparently. So this wasn’t a “planned” trip. The second floor was closed because they’re changing exhibits. It’s probably one of the smaller art museums I’ve been to, but I loved the Thorne Rooms so much.
Walking a 10-year-old around an art museum is interesting. She passed a lot of things then was shocked when she’d see it when she came back to find me. Reminding her not to touch things. Not just for COVID reasons, but other obvious reasons. We were allowed to take photos as long as there was no flash. A very common norm in art museums. No food or drink. Pretty normal rules.
It was a ton of fun and I’m thinking of going back again for the Asian American art exhibit at the end of the month.
