Wordless Wednesday–The Minnesota Children’s Museum

February 20, 2013

This Sunday my family and I went to the Minnesota Children’s Museum – where we were surprised with the fact that it was the 3rd Sunday of the month, which is sponsored by Target and therefore FREE to enter! Sweet – Except… very VERY busy!

Ethan Bubbles Childrens Museum MN

Ethan’s favorite place was the water tables – he loved exploring with his hands in the water and not getting in trouble for playing in the sink!

Andrew Water Experiment MN Childrens Museum

Andrew learned how to float a ball across a bunch of pipes by clogging the holes – it’s fun to see their minds figure these things out!

Grocery Store MN Childrens Museum

The grocery store was the next favorite for the boys. They were able to use their own sized grocery carts, go around and pick out food, weigh it, and put it up onto a conveyer belt so they could ‘check out.’  Grocery Shopping Childrens Museum MN

We had a ton of fun – exploring all of the different areas they have, and learning through interactive play!Walking Circles at MN Childrens Museum

Much more fun than sitting around at home like we had originally planned! We will definitely be heading back there soon, but making sure it’s not the 3rd Sunday of the month!

  7. I wish we had something like this here my son would get the biggest kick out of being “hands on”.

  8. We went to a museum in Chicago a few years ago and the kids were able to see a chic hatch right in front of them. Some of the exhibits are fun for adults, even though they are geared towards children.

  9. We love childrens’ museums. My kids usually head to the water areas first.

  10. The best times in elementary school were when we would take a field trip to a local science and history museum.
