Now that adult coloring books are sweeping the nation, we don’t have to hide our love for youthful illustrations and activities–like this new hand-drawn map of the Metropolitan Museum of Art called MetKids Map. The fun interactive platform is dotted with yellow and red circles for which children search and click, opening a separate window full of information about a gallery or work of art.
MetKids Map is actually quite large, with every gallery and major work detailed.
Yellow dots mark architectural features of the museum or specific spaces, whereas red ones are for the art. When a child (or adult!) clicks on the latter, general information and fun facts about the piece come up, as do separate categories with more info, videos, educational questions, at-home activities, and more.
The map is part of the larger MetKids project, which has other offerings like behind-the-scenes videos featuring kids, a digital time machine that shows 5,000 years of art, and creative projects to try at home.
