What a Day!
Today we walked inside a double helix, pet sharks, traversed ALL of the Great Lakes, climbed into a ship (hanging from the ceiling), operated a robotic dinosaur, appeared on a tv, stood in the middle of a lightning storm, ran a remote submersible, and even walked on water. Quite the day for two little boys!
Where were we? We visited a science museum - Discovery World in Milwaukee. One portion of the museum is science, robotics, design, and technology - very cool things to see and do. The other side is an aquarium which included an area with some great lakes history. The aquarium, of course, was big for the boys and we spent hours there.
They also have a very cool large scale model of the Great Lakes which shows each lake, all of the large cities on the shores, major landmarks, and then fish and animals which inhabit each of the lakes. Very cool. There was even a rainstorm over Lake Ontario, mist over Lake Superior, and locks to open/close to allow ships through.
We walked through the entire museum more than once - so much to see and do there.
What a great day!
