Adult-type exhibitions also may sound off-limits to those with kids, but if you really go to Boston with your tiny people, the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in the Seaport District. You are protected. Not only does she offer free admission for children under 17 years old, they offer a special family treat “Play Date” the first Saturday of every month.
The Family Playdate at ICA offers unique events for families, and individuals can get in with a baby (who are also available). A single Play Date was indeed unique, but consider a range of activities for families to do together, including cinema, unique concerts, art events, and excursions on the photos. You don’t get to record the Family Play Dates beforehand. The ICA both provides child adjusting locations, permits the use of prams throughout the art, and it has children’s food options at its diner.
To give you an idea of what the Play Dates are all about, the upcoming session is named “Urabn Parable.” Families are welcomed to the outlook performances by designer Mark Bradford (layered painters, facilities, statues) then watch a film about a franchise “urban adventures and misadventures.” Kids are indeed asked to submit their own first reviews of the movie they have noticed.
If you’re thinking about attending the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, then feel free to apply, Consider staying at the Seaport Hotel World Trade Center, Boston; the Boston Waterfront Renaissance Hotel, Boston; or the Marriott Boston Long Wharf Hotel, Boston — all of which are within walking distance of the Art Museum.
