Museums often evoke images of boring school trips, but the truth is there are many fantastic museums out there that are not only educational but also highly interactive. Even if the kids grumble when you taken their electronic games, you'll see their imaginations take control in the Sacramento children’s museum and they start exploring and having fun.
So you live in an area full of museums, which one should you choose?
– Museums with buses, trains, and trams are great when the kids can ride all the vehicles. Go to those that offer walks and have small green spots for picnics.
– Don't limit yourself to wheeled vehicles, if you are near the water there may be a marine museum. You might not be able to get the kids on the plane, but there's usually an old plane to explore and pretend.
– Choose a museum with exhibits aimed directly at children or an area your children care about. Vikings or pirates, forensic investigations, Egyptian mummies, and of course dinosaurs will spark your child's imagination.
– Kids love ice cream, cakes, and pastries. This is a fact of life. Find out which museums have kids-friendly restaurants.
-Take time for a leisurely stroll before or after visiting the museum. Green spaces to step on and sculptures or rocks to climb will release stored energy before you head home and add to the overall experience.
