“We had a blast playing tag on the Colorscape and looking at the colors we created. The magnifying glass was a huge hit, and my daughter loved looking at the art. I loved that it was at her level and that she was able to examine and appreciate the beautiful pieces.”

— Ashley Gillis, Hampton Roads Moms

Digital easels encourage children to explore art, and create their own masterpieces.

Travel to Ancient Worlds

Explore our Egyptian sarcophagus, try to decode hieroglyphs, or see how many animals you can find in these galleries dedicated to the Ancient Worlds.

“My son was absolutely fascinated by the sarcophagus (he couldn’t believe it was real!) and all the other displays in the Egyptian room. And to his surprise, it turned out to be not so scary after all.”
