MOSAIC (Month of Shows, Art, Ideas and Culture) rings in its fifth year of family fun in 2022! The one and only monthlong celebration of arts and culture in The Palm Beaches features more than a dozen cultural offers for you to enjoy throughout the month of May.
Below, you can explore my family’s journey to six separate MOSAIC locations and hopefully be inspired to make a trip of your own.
Mounts Botanical Garden
Mounts Botanical Garden is a special, lush oasis in West Palm Beach. There aren’t many places more beautiful than this to walk around with the family and enjoy nature. This 14-acre living plant museum with 23 spectacular gardens includes a water garden, butterfly garden, a rain garden and a fragrance garden. Over 2,000 species of native Florida plants, exotic and tropical fruit trees, herbs, palms and bromeliads await visitors of all ages. The kids loved feeding the fish and running around in the children’s maze. It’s one of those rare locations that makes you feel like you’re not in a city anymore.
Enjoy your trip to Mounts throughout MOSAIC (May 1–31) and receive one general or child admission at half-price with purchase of one general admission ticket.
Norton Museum of Art
The Norton Museum of Art is a world-class organization located in the heart of West Palm Beach. The caliber of the exhibitions and artists on display is extraordinary. You could spend an entire day exploring this magnificent museum, including the stunning garden and outdoor café.
Visit the museum during MOSAIC (May 1–31) and use your Culture Coupon to redeem a 10% discount on 3 p.m. museum tours, as well as Museum Shop and Restaurant purchases.
Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum
Ready to take your family vacation to new heights? Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum is a must-see for anyone traveling to The Palm Beaches—but especially for those who love the outdoors. The grounds surrounding the lighthouse are absolutely beautiful, highlighted by an enormous banyan tree and an amazing view that is truly second to none. Climbing the circular staircase to the top of the lighthouse is an exhilarating experience and great exercise to boot. We counted 105 steps!
Bring the family with you during MOSAIC and enjoy buy one, get one free children’s admission throughout the month of May.
Yesteryear Village at South Florida Fairgrounds is a history-focused hidden gem located on the western edge of West Palm Beach. Though we’ve been to the fairgrounds many times, we never knew this was there! We could’ve stayed for hours exploring all the different homes and shops, which are all focused on presenting Florida life before 1940. You really feel like you’ve been transported to another time. In addition, the volunteer staff is so knowledgeable and friendly that it really adds to the experience. It’s a great way to explore history with the kids in a hands-on way.
Best of all? Save $3 off tickets (maximum of four) when you visit during MOSAIC!
Cox Science Center & Aquarium
Looking to add some education into the mix? Look no further than the Cox Science Center & Aquarium in West Palm Beach’s Dreher Park. This is one of our favorite places to bring the boys, especially on a rainy day when you need a good indoor activity. The rotating exhibits means that there is always something new to see and do. Everything is so interactive that it really makes learning fun for the kids and for parents like us.
During MOSAIC, aspiring scientists can enjoy one FREE child admission (with the purchase of one adult admission) OR $5 off admission for up to 4 guests.
Resource Depot is an amazing place to go when you’re looking for arts and crafts for the kids. There are new treasures around every corner and it’s an opportunity to teach the kids about reuse and recycling. It also sparks creativity—the boys instantly wanted to take all these small pieces and put things together.
MOSAIC visitors can make waste into wonder with BOGO Bins at Resource Depot’s Materials Marketplace, or 25% off purchases from the TreasuRE Boutique.
