How to Prevent Museum Fatigue With The Kids

As much as we want our children to be cultured, educated members of a global world, dragging them around a museum for several hours will only make them resent the experience and probably even act out. Even adults can get museum fatigue and luckily there are ways to conquer it. 

Sean McLachlan of Gadling.com posted Five Ways to Keep Your Kids From Suffering Museum Fatigue

"Hey, look, this statue is missing its nose too!"
