The Works Hands-On Museum

This afternoon we spent a couple hours at The Works Hands-On Museum in Edina, MN. I had read about the fun there on Travel with Children. It wasn't too far away, so it made my list of things to do some time. I started following them on FB after Minnemom said they sometimes offer deals to their fans and that is just what happened. They posted a coupon for B1G2 FREE admission to be used this Th, F or Sat. That's right, all of us got to go for one admission price, which was $5. We couldn't pass that up on a place that we wanted to see anyway.

It is definitely worth $5 a person if we would have gone without a coupon (although, you know me & coupons.) It was so fun for all of us. Daddy & I played as much as Isabel did. Henry just slept (kids under 3 are free too!)
As you can see there was a variety of activities and we didn't even get to spend a lot of time at them all. We only left after 2 hours because they were closing. Next time I think I might allow three hours for us. We seem to be spending that much time at museums these days with her and even after three hours we are still dragging her out reluctantly.
She was very excited when we told her we were going to a museum today. She has learned that most of the museums we take her too are a lot of fun.

This trip there was mainly about exploration for all of us, next time we can make it more educational and explain things more to her and ask her probing questions. We all had a good time.
