So many sculptures are smooth and show muscular men, but the Giacomettis are skinny and bumpy and a little frail. It seems as if you could snap off a piece of them with just a twist of your finger. Which maybe you can! (But don’t try.)
I like this one because it’s a different style of art: It’s a whole room that they just built right into the museum. I like how old and fancy it looks, and that you can walk around and explore it.
It’s a room full of dozens and dozens of beautiful glass spheres, and it’s like there’s a whole world inside every one of them. It’s neat to think that all of this art and design was just for an object that holds paper down in the wind.
Surrealist paintings really spark your imagination. To me, this one looks like skeletons on ice with pieces of macaroni. Macaroni is something most kids are acquainted with.
All the old furniture in these rooms makes you feel like you’re in a house, which is cool. And it’s pretty great for making up imaginary games — pretending that it’s your home and you’re the regal-looking people in the paintings on the walls.
I like how detailed these tiny rooms are. Each one seems like a real place that had a spell cast upon it that miniaturized it. It really is quite magical. I was attracted to the miniatures because of the book series The Sixty-Eight Rooms, where the rooms become fantastical worlds that you can go into using a special key.
