I remember watching this building when it was under construction a couple of years ago, thinking it was the oddest thing I had ever seen. That glass protrusion on the side of the building, we found out today, is an escalator.
"...designed for visitors who enjoy heights and aerial views..." Yep, that sounds just like something I would enjoy. No wonder McKay thought this would be the perfect thing to do!
They also loved all the exhibits. This museum is vast! We could have easily spent another couple of hours taking more time with some of their favorites. The remote control vehicles were, by far, McKay's favorite. He got to build one, connect it to the power source, and then try it out on several different tracks. If the other boys hadn't been anxious to move on, I think McKay would have been content to stay there the entire day.
We fit as much as we could into the brief time we had in the museum. We will definitely have to visit this place again over the summer.
Hanging out with a bunch of fifth graders at a science museum is a pretty great way to spend a spring day.
