Day 4.100: Science buff
Yesterday we spent a rather wet morning at the Buffalo Museum of Science. It's a great place - approximately on the cusp between big museum (generally difficult for our kids) and small museum (usually a hit). It's big but because of its huge scope, the individual sections don't seem overwhelming. Lots of the rooms have at least some hands-on kid-friendly activities.
The temporary Narnia exhibit was a big hit with the girls particularly (they have recently had the series as bedtime stories in between finishing Harry Potter and starting A Series of Unfortunate Events) it was a nice combination of movie costumes and props and loosely-related but fun activities, videos etc. Because we visited on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday in April there was no additional charge - which made it especially satisfactory.
The title is a pun borrowed from the museum's web address.
