Liam’s been to many museums in his lifetime: The Portrait Gallery, The Air & Space Museum, the National Geographic, the Goddard Space Center. We spent several play dates at the College Park Aviation Museum. I’d venture to guess he’s been inside every Smithsonian museum. And, sadly, I doubt he remembers any of it. But now, at three and a half, he’s really starting to take part in the action. Today I took him to the Orlando Science Center, and he absolutely loved it! His favorite was the magnetized wall with tubes the kids could configure for little wooden balls to plunk their way down.
There was an entire room devoted to planes, trains, and cars that he loved, too. And he got a kick out of the miniature race track, where little model cars could go zooming down a giant hill to the finish line. A perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon! I just wish we could have stayed longer. But he pooped out after a few hours. Too bad it’s looking so likely we’re moving…this would be a great place to get a yearly membership. In October, OSC is hosting a traveling Star Wars exhibit. Needless to say, we’ll be coming back then. Can’t wait!
