The museum is free to military families! You do have to pay for the IMAX and the special exhibits, but I didn't have time for that this visit. Here's Junior checking out a movie on dinosaurs.
We visited with the mummy. The boy has watched too much Scooby Doo.
They have a discovery section for the kids, so Junior wanted to spend more of the time there.
Puzzles to do.
They could become paleontologists.
Take apart a human body.
There is definitely a lot to do, plus it is right next to City Park, so when I take all the kiddos we will pack a picnic lunch. There are also water jets in the back of the museum that the kids can play in during the "heat" of the summer.
We did have to swing by the gift shop on the way out and Junior picked out a space helmet. He said he is using it to go visit his Grandpa. Sigh.
