Amid Bruce Willis’ health struggles, Demi Moore and her daughter Scout Willis kept their spirits lifted with a day at the museum.
The Ghost star, 59, posted two Instagram photos from their recent trip to the museum, where they posed beside a massive cherry blossom display by British artist Damien Hirst.
Despite their current personal struggles, Demi and Scout, 30, managed to appear in high spirits as they took in the colorful artwork.

Willis’ family announced last week that he was retiring from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia.
‘To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities,’ they wrote.
‘As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him. This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support.
‘We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him,’ they added. ‘As Bruce always says, “Live it up” and together we plan to do just that.’

Willis shares three daughters — Rumer, 33, Scout, and Tallulah, 28 — with his ex-wife Demi Moore, 59, and two daughters — Mabel, nine, and Evelyn, seven — with his wife Emma Heming Willis, 43.
The statement was signed ‘Emma, Demi, Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel, & Evelyn.’
‘Aphasia is an impairment of language, affecting the production or comprehension of speech and the ability to read or write,’ according to the National Aphasia Association.
It is always due to injury to the brain, most commonly from a stroke, particularly in older individuals. Head trauma, brain tumors, or infections can also cause aphasia.

No cause for the condition has been revealed, but it was reported that the 67-year-old actor’s friends and family believe a head injury he suffered on the set of the 2002 action movie Tears Of the Sun may have contributed to his condition.
Willis sued the production company, Revolution Studios, in 2004, claiming he had suffered ‘substantial mental and physical injuries’ after he had been hit by a ‘squib’ — a special effects explosive meant to look like the impact of gunfire, during the October 2002 production.
The lawsuit was settled in 2005, but details of the agreement were not released.
Sources claim the actor has worked to camouflage his condition as best as he can relying on assistants and technology to work on movie sets. He was pictured wearing what seemed to be an earpiece to feed him lines on the set of American Siege in 2020.
