The Children’s Museum is celebrating 25 years of kid sized fun. I loved going to the Children’s Museum as a kid and I have been looking for someone to lend me their kid so I can go check out the new and expanded Children’s Museum. In the past few years they expanded into what used to be the Buhl Science Center. Check out this blog post on Null Space which links to this article about a professor who was inspired by the planetarium.
To celebrate the Children’s Museum is having a big party on Saturday and admission is only$.25, which is a great deal because it is usually $8 for kids and $9 for adults.
Some of my favorite things about the Children’s Museum:
- Suffy – the large stange looking guy whose stomach unzips so you can see his stuff organs
- Screen Printing – while you usually only get to print on paper, screen printing has become one of my favorites and had a big part in my path to t-shirts.
- Braille Typewriters – I loved typing my name in braille and attempting to read it later
I have no idea if these exhibits are still there. I would love to hear what you like/remember about the Children’s Museum.
