During holidays, partake of Dalí with family in St. Petersburg

Yes, you probably feel you have recently spent an enormous amount of holiday time and thought on and with your family and yes, indeed, you have.

Wasn't it fun?

Maybe habit-forming?

Most area museums sit in park-like areas that are a free delight just for hanging out. They also have great family programs and none more extensive than the Dalí Museum, 1 Dalí Blvd., St. Petersburg. Go to the website,, to see the abundance of things to do there — yoga, films, community speakers, arts and crafts for families — and that's before the art.

A favorite idea is Breakfast with Dalí for Families, recommended for parents with kids 5 to 12, that includes an interactive docent tour tooled for younger viewers followed by a breakfast buffet and hands-on activities. The next one is 9:30 a.m. Saturday. The cost is $21 for adults and $10 per child (members pay about half that). A splurge to be sure but it's about what you spend on a movie, popcorn and a soda.
