Spring is in full bloom, and our local museums are bursting with new life. Almost all of our favorite institutions have just debuted incredible, family-friendly exhibitions, from a playdate with Pinocchio to a dizzying display of dresses. Click though to see them all.

Strandbeest: The Dream Machines of Theo Jansen at the Exploratorium

Beginning May 27, experience Strandbeest: The Dream Machines of Theo Jansen. This special exhibition, on tour for the first time in North America, features enormous kinetic sculptures called strandbeests—“beach animals” in Dutch—that mesmerize with their eerily lifelike motion and walk a wandering, wind-blown line between art and engineering, mechanics and biology.
