Spending Sunday at the Boston Science Museum

We had the best time at the Boston Science Museum.  My husband surprised us with a day trip there and with our Yale Peabody Museum passes we got in free!  It is a huge museum with so much to see and do.  We spent hours at the museum and I'm still not sure we saw everything.




We learned a bit about outer space.




We decided to spring for tickets to see an Omni movie Pandas and the boys were in awe of the giant screen.  It felt like we were in the movie and could reach out and touch their furry faces.


There were live animals in quite a few places.


Neat sculptures and works of art; this one moved and was supposed to remind the viewer of the waves on the Charles river.


There were all sorts of interactive displays too.



These giant screens on the ceiling kept changing throughout the day and we saw some pretty neat things walking above us.


A living wall of plants.


We learned about fossils, bones, dinosaurs, and even petrified trees.








We spent some time exploring gems, rocks, and crystals.



We learned more about how our senses work.



 Read up on mathematics and how it applies to everything in our world.


Then we watched the lightning show; I just loved that it was different from our last trip.


We learned about wind, solar power, and weather patterns.


We had fun playing with optical illusions.


 We explored models of every type and size.



Best of all we had so much fun together.






It was a wonderful day and felt like it went by in the blink of an eye.



Have you ever been to Boston?

    1. It really is amazing and so big that it's nearly impossible to cover it all in one day.
