Orlando Museum of Art
My bestie and I rewarded our kids with day trips when they were little if they did good in school. We weren’t focused on their grades, but their behavior. When they had real good weeks at school, we would take them out to do something fun… often together.
In February of 2017, Orlando’s Arts in the Park event was held at Loch Haven Park which is home to several cool places to stop and visit. It happened to be a week that the kids did well so we decided to take them.
We started the day with a visit to the Orlando Museum of Art. They had a small conference room set up for different companies to demonstrate things like Virtual Reality and stuff like that. So we walked through there first and experienced everything that looked interesting to us or the kids.
After that, we walked through the actual museum observing the different kinds of art displayed. I think the virtual reality stuff was more exciting for the kids for sure. Bestie and I found the art to be more interesting, personally. We’re both crafters though so art is our hobby. It was a nice stop, we enjoyed what we saw. There were definitely some very interesting pieces.

Being from Orlando, we didn’t make a Roadtrippers itinerary for this trip because it was all part of the Arts in the Park event that was happening that weekend. We didn’t really plan the places we visited, we just visited them because they were in the park we happened to be at.
I do recommend visiting the Orlando Museum of Art if you happen to be in the Orlando area and art museums are your thing. They do have several very interesting pieces, some pretty profound. It’s a great field trip for the kids as well.
Have you taken it already? I’d love to hear what you thought of it. Did you see the ghost lady?
