The Museum of Sensory and Movement Experiences is designed primarily for adults.
The exhibits in MSME resonate most strongly with those who can find some stillness to sink into the moment, contemplate, and appreciate the artworks.
However, we’ve had plenty of younger visitors enjoy their time at MSME. In our experience, kids ~8+, tweens, pre-teens, and teenagers all have the patience to immerse themselves in the exhibits at MSME. Of course, every child is different, so take the ages stated above as an approximate guideline.
Children 7 and below generally need guidance from an adult to enjoy the exhibits, and children 5 and below may be too young to truly enjoy their visit.
