Young At Art Museum, Davie

4.1
YAA is one of only 8 Major Cultural Institutions in Broward County, and is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. The 55,000 sq. ft. museum features exhibition galleries, a YAA Art Institute, Teen Center, Museum Preschool and Broward County Public Library.

Young At Art Museum (originally named Young At Art Children’s Museum) was founded in 1987 to fill a void in arts education in South Florida public schools. Founded by artists Esther and Mindy Shrago, Young At Art traveled South Florida for two years as a Museum Without Walls, opening in 1989 in a 3,200 sq. ft. storefront in Plantation, Florida. Outgrowing its space immediately, YAA utilized creative means for meeting the demands of families, from leasing storefronts for camps and classes to establishing a Traveling Exhibit Program for small museums in Florida. Ten years later, in response to overwhelming community demand, Young At Art relocated to Davie in 1998, moving into a 24,000 sq. ft. leased space and proving its ability to successfully operate a $1 million+ museum with exhibit galleries, art studio classes, student field trips and events for 100,000 children and families annually.

Over the next decade, Young At Art set its sights on establishing a permanent home. With federal, state, county, town and community support – and through a public/private partnership with Broward County – Young At Art opened a groundbreaking new 55,000 sq. ft. Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) museum and public library on May 5, 2012, named by the Knight Foundation “as one of the most transformative arts initiatives in South Florida.”

  • This is a great place if your kids are under the age of 8. Mine were totally bored but I could see if being nice for a family with little ones. It’s air conditioned and has lots of hands on activities and the wave playhouse is very cool. But if your kids are older don’t bother. It’s not worth the ticket price.
  • This place used to be awesome. I used to love this place and I even had a one year membership about 3 years ago. My son loved it and so did I due to the fun and interactive areas. However, after not going for about 2 years due to my son starting school, I decided to go back. Guess what?....nothing has really changed! There are two main areas (“exhibits”) that change every so often and everything else pretty much stays the same. I understand it’s not feasible to change everything but at least keep the areas presentable. The ponchos in the water area were torn and some could not be worn, the market had many missing items, etc. A lot of the areas had many missing things. A little maintenance, coat of paint, and replacement of key items goes a long way! I understand kids are kids and they wear things down but there’s a point someone should say “let’s see what we can do”. I did not give less stars because I agree that if your child is young, such as mine, then it can provide a day “out” that keeps your child relatively busy. I see now why it’s on Groupon every week. For the Groupon rate, it’s worth it but I don’t recommend a one year subscription.
