"This gorgeous series makes a perfect gift for creative children."
--Frances Morris, Director, Tate Modern Museum

"Visits to museums and galleries are life enhancing at any age, and ‘Take To Museums’ shows that it’s easy to start young!"
--Nancy Ireson, Deputy Director for Collections and Exhibitions and Gund Family Chief Curator of the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia

With its stylish design, zingy illustrations and handy size to pop in a bag, Take Me To Museums is a must-have accompaniment to every museum or gallery visit. The book is divided into five 'adventure' chapters. Every time children take a trip to a museum, a new adventure begins. On their journey around the gallery spaces they are encouraged to record their thoughts and draw what they see. Each chapter is unique – so on every visit they will discover something different. Packed with facts about museums all over the world, the book also includes a timeline of museum history and a glossary. To wrap it all up there’s a section for making notes and a page for comparing the five adventures.
