I love museums! And I got lucky enough to marry a man who also loves museums. In fact our last date was his idea! We went on a double date and set up my good friend with Alan’s cousin and headed to Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, Utah to a hands on physics exhibit. It was so fun to see science in action! Now I am NOT a science person by any means, in fact science was my worst subject in school, but this exhibit was for people of all ages so I understood a lot of it. It’s just really cool stuff to see and do on your own! Like we pedaled to turn on lights, changed the wind speed to blow a flag, made a bicycle pedal by pushing buttons, and watched the movement of a pendulum. So fun! And during the month of August they had a $2 Tuesday special so it was a great price!
There are museums and exhibits all over the United States. It helps if you live near a big city, but there are also historical monuments pretty much anywhere. So find one near you, find a babysitter if you need one, and bring your camera along!
I totally forgot my camera this time, but we went to a different exhibit at the same place last year so here are some pictures of that.
One exhibit was to shoot a basketball, put these glasses on that shifted your sight and your brain learned to shoot a basket even with your eyesight off centered. Then you take the glasses off and can’t make a basket! But don’t worry, your brain and eyes readjust in just a few throws.
