Paris 1900 was an amazing insight into turn of the century Paris. It was a delightful experience. The exhibit is only in town for three more days so you need to make plans this weekend if you want to see it.
This review is solely for the Children's section, since my children have never allowed me to investigate the rest of the museum: My kids love coming here, it's a great rainy day activity and it never gets too crowded. They rotate stations more often than I anticipated, so there's always something new to check out. My daughter and I love to draw the mannequin. It's a great place to allow kids to be creative and where there are plant of volunteers to help so you don't have to do it all for them!
We visited the Paris 1900 Exhibit about art, fashion, lifestyle and the 1900 Exhibition. Fabulous!! Historic and tres chic! The discovery exhibit upstairs is super fun for kids of all ages- and adults!
Nice little spot to getaway from the bustle on Broad. +1 for reduced entry prices on certain days. I just wish there was more to see... I wasn't ready to leave.
Loved the interactive art area which is open to all ages. Interesting exhibits. That it is set in the original main post office building in Nashville really added to the expierence.
