Have you been to the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum lately? Despite living here for ten years, I never considered it to be a kid-friendly environment, both out of respect for other visitors and the level of entertainment it would offer my littles. But after last summer’s visit, I realized how wrong I was! When you’ve had enough of the beach/pool/sun and you want a place to cool down, check out their fantastic animation exhibit this summer, available until September 22, 2013.
It celebrates the 100th anniversary of drawn animation and is from the Toonseum of Pittsburgh. Included are our children’s favorites such as SpongeBob Squarepants, Mickey Mouse, and Sleeping Beauty. For younger visitors, it’s a delight to see. For older children, it will give them an understanding and appreciation for the tremendous amount of work it once took to hand-drawn and paint each cartoon cell individually.
You can learn more about the exhibit and the museum on their site here. It is located across from the Springmaid Beach Resort at 3100 South Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach. Admission is free!
