International Children’s Art Museum Coupons, Savings and Museum Description for 2018
Located within the World Trade Center section of San Francisco's landmark Ferry Building, the International Children's Art Museum features art from children around the world. Its purpose is to help viewers broaden their perspective of art and cultures by displaying, comparing, and contrasting the many ways in which youth the world over interpret life.
Given its own international heritage, the nearly 240,000-square-foot Ferry Building is in many ways the perfect venue for this museum. Originally built between 1896 and 1903 as a central ferry port, the structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Its neo-Romanesque fazade and 240-foot-high clock tower were modeled after the campanile of Seville Cathedral known as the Giralda. The building and its tower survived the devastating earthquake of 1906 intact to become the symbol of San Francisco for decades.
