This is a family friendly activity, but could get a bit boring if you are not a fan of blown glass. It is beautiful to look at, and I love the cone shaped structure out front of the museum.

Yes it is a kid friendly musuem. There was a room behind the entrance were a craft project of making paper hats was being worked on with families. The hot shop gallery is perfect for viewing. The displays are spaced far apart so you don't have to worry about bumping into them. However-no running.
