natural history museum, science museum & butterfly exhibition

Thursday, July 25, 2013

last week we decided to have a museum day and we went to the natural history museum, butterfly exhibition (we went to the previous one they had, see here) and the science museum.  i love visiting these museums!

riley had a little nap when we got there but was WIDE awake and very curious about everything around him.  the only thing he hated was the T-Rex that was moving around and growling.  he absolutely LOVED the butterfly exhibition and he was staring at all the different butterflies and so wanted to touch them.

we had a quick walk through the science museum (we ran out of time – and will have to go back) before we went home.  my favourite exhibition in the science museum is the making the modern world exhibition.  they have cars, bicycles, electronic stuff and everything you can think of from 1750 until 2000. the exploring space exhibition is also very interesting. this have a real astronaut suit (worn by the first british woman in space) and even a full-sized replica of ‘Eagle’ – the lander that took astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin to the Moon in 1969.

we can’t wait to go back!
