Hours: Wednesday - Sunday, 11:00-6:00pm (Check to be sure it's not closed to bring in a new instation HERE.)
Appropriate Age: Any age
The Art Car Museum is located in the Heights and is always free of charge. It has art cars as well as contemporary art. The museum’s goal is to "encourage the public’s awareness of the cultural, political, economic and personal dimensions of art".
Guests of all ages can get an up-close look at about 5 vehicles (that change every few months). The only trick is... no touching!
Are there any good, kid-friendly, inexpensive restaurants around? Want to put this up on our playgroup calendar, but it's far for most so lunch afterwards will be nice.
I wish Mission Burrito or Natachee's was closer to the Art Car Museum because they are my "go-to" spots. Still, there are a lot of options in the Heights. http://goo.gl/maps/88n6w If you go south on Heights and east on Washington, there is Star Pizza. Or if you go south on Heights until you pass Dallas, there is a Lubys. Or, in this same area, is the Montrose Whole Foods. http://goo.gl/maps/A4FFZ You could grab food and have a little picnic here.
Let me know if this helps. Also, let me know if I can make any other playdate suggestions. 🙂
Thanks for the suggestions. Star Pizza is perfect! The moms will appreciate the pizza & salad buffet
