  “For every person who comes in, it will be like exposing a film to the light and seeing what image develops" - C.H
We try to expose our oldest CJ to as many unique experiences in the city as possible, which means at times taking advantage of as many free admission days at museums as much as possible, be advised that several frugal families have the same idea in mind and some events can get rather crowded.  When I think of funhouses I instantly think of Brooklyn's Coney Island, unfortunately these amusement park staples are a rarity these days. Höller was initially a scientist whose works look part laboratory and fun house and include: slides, distorted mirrors, walls and floors, and creepy corridors. I am looking forward to the steel twisty slide that will take you from the 4th floor to the 1st of the museum as you giggle and scream in delight (here's hoping we can get CJ to do it too), the beautiful  mirrored carousel  and to see who dares to partake in the "Giant Psycho Tank" a sensory deprivation tank. I'm intrigued based on descriptions of having an outer body and hallucinatory experience. During the Family event (recommended for children aged 4-15)  re-imagine Carsten Höller’s 1991 performance Children Demonstrate for the Future, 1991, by creating posters, signs, stickers, and fliers to march in the name of the future.
