Museum of Natural Curiosity

For the month of August Thanksgiving Point has $2 Tuesdays, where each of their venues is only $2 for admission. It's a screamin' deal since they are normally about $15 each. Of course, where there is a great deal, there are also lots of people, especially at such a new venue as the Museum of Natural Curiosity which just opened a few months ago. We had to wait in line for an hour to get in, and then it was crazy busy inside. But, for $2, you really can't complain.

I wish we would have spent more time outside because it wasn't crowded, but we went out at the end of our visit and had to hurry through it. The kids loved the hedge mazes. 




There was also a pretend cave with a little tunnel inside. Julia and Micah were playing the tunnel for five minutes, then I yelled up to them that it was time to move on. Julia came out, but not Micah, so I sent her back in to get him. A minute later she came back and said she couldn't find him. I thought, "Uhhh...then where did he go?" Then Julia said, "maybe he went outside." So I asked Julia if there was an opening to the outside on the other side of the tunnel, and she said yes. Oops! I hadn't realized that. We ran outside to the other side of the cave where the opening to the tunnel was and found Micah wandering around in the trees on top of the cave.

Inside Camden loved the sand and rotating wheel. You put sand on the rotating wheel and make designs. I guess it was fascinating to Camden, he stayed there with my Mom for a while after had we moved on.

Behold the Floating Head, and hands.
