We did the Science Centre on one day, the Museum on another and the Library and GOMA on another.
My favourite was the Gallery of Modern Art. There were interactive art pieces that Monkey could touch (gasp!) and play with. It's another place I want to re-visit once all the rebuilding is done... Their area specifically for children was destroyed in the flood.
My top picks for little kids are the following displays - there are many more but these are the ones Monkey got really involved in.
Olafur Eliasson The cubic structural evolution project 2004 - think millions of pure white pieces of lego on a white table, with all visitors encouraged to build a construction of their own and add it to the display.
From Monkey's simple to the alarmingly complex.
Rivane Neuenschwander I Wish your Wish 2003 - Monkey was too interested in the lego to want to spend time at the wall of ribbon wishes! But the school age children spent ages choosing their wishes and walked around with their chosen wish proudly displayed on their wrists.
Martin Creed- For Work No. 956: Half the air in a given space (purple) 2008 - 3000 purple balloons, one glass room.... Not much more to say really!
|He wants a room full of balloons for his birthday. No photos of the tears after we had to leave the room.|
