My kids have loved the Science and Children’s Discovery Museums in Acton ever since we discovered them when Emma was a toddler. We even invested in a membership for a while, which we let lapse to pay for other experiences, but if the kids have their way we’ll rejoin again. This sand and light table has been a huge hit with each of my kids, especially when they were around Lily’s age (two years old).
Emma and Johnny have become increasingly fond of this glow-in-the-dark wall. You can learn how to make one of these for your own home at Fangletronics!
Water vapor is always interesting – actually, water in any form is always fascinating for my kids!
This heat sensor display is one of the newer exhibits – very cool! That’s Mike (wearing glasses) with all three kids :)
Last but certainly not least, here’s a video of a few other favorites!
