Venture into ARENA 1 to see an exhibit called Woman look Out highlighting female artists who look out for others. If theater is more your scene, the Ruskin Group Theater will be preforming and offering improvisation workshops for kids.
Don’t worry, even if you’re not that into art, you can head off to the Museum of Flying. The museum will explore the history of flight through interactive exhibits. Want a break?
