A friend called me out of the blue today and asked if I wanted to venture out to a new children's museum that opened up across the bridge from us in Maryland. I of course was up for it and excited about getting out of the house.
I honestly had no idea what to expect from a children's museum, I just figured there'd be exhibits and shit to look at.
It was actually a lot of fun (not that looking at ancient artifacts I know nothing about isn't fun) and not what I expected at all. Everything was hands on and there were so many different stations with different activities.
The museum definitely is for older kids (4 and up) but there was a section for younger children/infants that Natalie and I enjoyed very much. There were chalk boards and baby dolls and puzzles and crafts and so much more. Of all the things to do Natalie really liked carrying around a doll and tossing a plastic tomato around like a ball.
For the older kids there were stations that were educational but really entertaining. They focused a lot on different cultures and other parts of the world, which is really important for kids to learn about.
I didn't take a lot of pictures and most of them turned out blurry but here are a few decent ones.
