Museums are always a favorite fall indoor past time  They’re fun and educational, and keep the family out of those fall chills and showers. But while we love to visit museums on any day, museums draw us in even more when there’s a good new exhibit on display — and this fall serves up an excellent selection of special exhibits. Click through to check out these awesome fall 2017 museum exhibits the whole family will enjoy.   

Sonic Arcade at the Museum of Arts and Design

While a majority of museum exhibits focus on sight, the Museum of Arts and Design is venturing in a lesser utilized sense: hearing. Sonic Arcade is a series of interactive exhibits that explore the relationship between space and sound; in other words, it's a playground within the museum, which reacts to movement and other interactions by producing sounds. The various things on display include an actual sound playground, a xylophone bracelet, and other unique ways of producing sound with your environment.
