TVA has, for the 2nd year, sponsored free days on the 2nd Thursday of every month at the Discovery Museum. General Admission isn't really all that expensive but it's kinda hard to pass up a free pass. 😃
My sister-in-law and I decided to take the kiddos last week and we had an absolute blast.
If you haven't heard of or been to a Discovery Museum before, they're are geared to exploring and learning through fun interactive activities. Each section has a theme: art, water, music and so on. The top floor changes monthly. One time it was Curious George themed, then Clifford themed and this visit was History/Medieval themed.
Outside is all about mechanical power; turn a wheel and it spins a blade sort of stuff but the biggest hit was a simple bathtub filled with suds.
Back inside to create something out of trash that will fly in the wind tunnel.
Rawr! Dinosaur room! Where you "dig" in the sand for Dino bones and check out fossils.
Time to jam in the music room!
And finish the night off with encasing yourself in a giant bubble. 😊
Kids had a blast and us adults had fun too (well, I had fun until I got a call from John on our way home informing me that our heating and air unit decided to die <insert sad face>. Oh well, I didn't let that bit of crappy news ruin the fun we'd had that day.)
