Currently exhibiting:

Flights into Fantasy:
The Kendra and Allan Daniel Collection of Children's Illustration

In this collection, children are frequently recurring subjects, and the psychological state of childhood where the mind wanders freely into a world of wonder is a prevailing theme. From the Golden Age of Illustration, the exhibition includes works like Arthur Rackham's delicate pen illustration for Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens and William Heath Robinson's imaginative illustration for A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Field Trip Planning:
Be sure to visit the educators' section of their web site. You will find information to help you prepare your family for their visit to the museum. You will also find information about their quality programing available to schools. Programs are available for a variety of ages and interest and the fees are reasonable. This would be a great place to plan a field trip for your homeschool co-op or to organize a trip for any interested group of homeschoolers...
