Escape the rain
Some kid-tastic and enlightening museum exhibits on now warrant a visit with your crew, and the open weekdays of mid-winter break make it lots easier to go.
- Consider black leaders your kids may know and many you don't at a traveling Smithsonian exhibition called “Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth.” at the Washington State History Museum. (We've also rounded up Black History Month events for families around the region.)
- The updated and just re-opened Seattle Asian Art Museum features a hands-on education lab that's open to families and has some fun things to spot in the galleries.
- Take your Minecraft fans to MoPop's “Minecraft the Exhibition” where they can — you guessed it — play Minecraft. Families can also learn more about the history and reach of the game.
- Have you been to the new Burke Museum? Get your kids an up-close view of science in action at the Burke's open labs where scientists and curators work.
