Spark creativity in your kids with a trip to the Frye Art Museum. Opened in 1952, the museum first started with the Frye's private collection of works from early 1800 to the 1900s. Now, it has expanded to hold changing exhibits depicting society's current transformations. Charles Frye indicated in his will that the public should be allowed to see his collections for free. Aside from the free admission, reviewers rave about the friendly and helpful staff who make the museum even more awesome than it already is.
