These taxes allowed the museum to totally rebuild and move to a new and amazing building a few years ago. Honestly, their normal prices are out of my range, so we try to keep the free days on our radar. Last week I got online and signed us all up to attend the 12:00 time-slot.
|Look how big those dinosaurs are!|
We were expecting bigger crowds, but it wasn't too bad and we had plenty of time to spend in our favorite places. Baby Doll was a little nervous about all the big dinosaur bones, but she got over it quickly when we let her dig in the sand to uncover some bones. Crafty loved the area where she stepped on the floor and the color changed. Sport loved putting his hand on the fingerprint wall to capture the heat and pressure. Scout was excited about the sand table, and Curly loved everything! He's just that kind of guy.
Drama Queen loved walking on the glass floors and looking down at the fossils displayed about 3 feet down. Grandpa's favorite part was the rattlesnake and I think he took each kid over there separately to let them see it. Baby Doll really liked the ant farm and the dioramas with the animals in them. And Prima Donna's favorite part was building up the little houses and shaking them down like an earthquake.
I just liked watching all the kids discover things together.
