WHERE TO TAKE KIDS IN STROLLERS DURING ARTPRIZE NINE
ArtPrize runs SEPTEMBER 20 – OCTOBER 8, 2017
Use this list & map and of attractions to navigate ArtPrize with children!
ArtPrize is for all ages, and that includes kids! We love to take our children to this city-wide event – from babies in strollers to big kids full of curiosity, they all have a great time. ArtPrize is a great opportunity to bring your kids to one of the biggest art events in the world, but how do you decide where to go and what to see?
ArtPrize transforms Grand Rapids into a giant art show attracting thousands of people, but it’s not always easy to navigate this large and exciting event with kids in tow.
Use this guide to plan your visit and make the most of your time. We’ll tell you which venues to visit, where they are located, and which exhibits the kids will enjoy most. And to enhance their experience, we’ve also created two Scavenger Hunt printables for kids to use on your visit!
WE’VE GOT A ROUTE FOR BIG KIDS, TOO!
We’ve chosen a couple of routes that are easy to walk with children and easy to navigate with strollers, as well as venues that have art your kids will love. One route is geared toward the littler kids, while the second route will be enjoyed by older kids. Check out our suggestions below – choose your own modified path or visit them all.
Please note that the Women’s City Club is a little tight with strollers. Also, DeVos Hall has exhibits you may want to use caution with when visiting with children (these exhibits are not on our list, but are found at the venue.)
Either way we know you and your kids will love what ArtPrize Nine has to offer!
More info on experiencing ArtPrize with kids can be found in the official ArtPrize Nine Family Experience Guide.
