We had a good time despite the crowds. The museum is divided into 6 different exhibits, each a self-contained room so that I felt comfortable giving the older three some freedom in wandering around. Surprisingly, the windows were the most interesting, fun places in one of the rooms.
There were a lot of other fun things to do as well. Like have a car race,
try to stack nails,
follow a ball through an obstacle course,
whack a dummy head with a huge mallet,
form a square,
or draft a new invention.
But the kids all agree that their very favorite activity was the ball race, wherein the ball was powered by the mind.
Our day through science ended with a 3D movie on the journey the not yet released Boeing 787 has taken from dream to reality.
And my favorite moment? This one...by a mile.
