Science Museum

Yesterday we trekked off to a Science Museum a couple of hours away.  We were tired of our usual haunts and needed a new place to explore.  This museum was on the small side, but really pretty fun.  There were lots of hands on physics experiments, optical illusions, and even a reptile room with an enormous, live Burmese python.  After our visit we ate lunch at a little local diner and explore the town a little before heading home.  Everyone was pretty tired out after our day and headed off for bed a little early :)

Faster, faster Little will make for a good rest later!

I wondered what Sassyfras was thinking about here.

Juiciness is actually lifting 100 pounds because of the length of this lever.

I also meant to say she also likes this Simple Machines game on the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry webpage. Thought I'd share..maybe your kids would find it interesting.

Loved Juiciness lifting the weight. I love Kid Museums.

We went to a science museum for our Field Trip Friday post, too. I think my kids would stay inside one all the day long.
