The Terrible Truth About Children’s Museum

The Terrible Truth About Children’s Museum

The local children’s science center just moved into our neighborhood. So, thats a big score. The price for a family admission for a year is very doable.


 It’s a crazy cool place with tons of hands on things to play with.

And this brings me to the terrible truth about children’s museums…The truth is they’d be a lot more fun without children in them. 

I mean, sure the youngest loves the pre-school room.


And the oldest loves the water center.

 And the kids have a ton of fun when they go.


 But…I’m having WAY too much fun myself to watch the kids.

Seriously, magnetic sand!Magnetic Sand Sci Quest

How cool is this stuff!

Oooh! Oooh! The felt room!

First of all, I love felt.*

And I love these butterflies you can decorate with felt pieces.

 I want one at my house!

 Um…yeah, Stella if you could just go on and get away from the butterflies because Mama wants to play!

Sci Quest Huntsville

 Each experiment has a plaque with an explanation that teaches you the science behind the experiment. Er…yeah, the minions totally ignore them.

 Honestly, I ignore them too because…

Have you seen how fabulous I look in this mirror?


 This is what my legs should have looked like. Long! **

Oh, I’m sorry child. I don’t have time to teach you about science because I’m too busy enjoying myself. 

I’m sure that’s what the founders envisioned when they dreamed about Sci-Quest – parents ignoring their children.

If you live in Huntsville, Go!


*Here’s when I don’t love felt: When I accidentally felt something my Mom has made me. Seriously, just don’t ask her about the amazing jacket she knit for James when he was a baby.

    Looks like so much fun! When I go to those places, I wish there was a ‘kids room’with a Playstation, so they could bugger off and I could play with the iron filings and stuff!
