Very nice art museum with a lot of different mediums. I love glass and was very surprised to see a special exhibit focusing on glass and other areas where glass was highlighted. Some beautiful paintings also.

I would say, kids over 10 may find it more interesting. There are art activities , but would say they are for kids over 10. If your 7 year old is especially interested in creating art, then it may be OK.
