A little while ago Dakota and I met up with our friend Dan and decided to take his little man Sajen to the children’s museum downtown. This museum is fully funded by donations (they only ask $3.00 to enter) and is easily the cutest little place for kids!
There were SO many different rooms that were all interactive and educational and there is something there to appeal to every time of personality. Dakota and Dan particularly loved the Frozen room and the basketball arena (because they are children at heart) and Sajen really liked the farm room because he could sit in the truck and steer it. I made a list of each room and their various activities at the bottom so you can get a good idea on what to expect.
We all had such a blast and I wish we could have stayed longer but we had to get back to our adult lives. I was very impressed with the museum and can’t wait to go back with our little ones some day 🙂
