Fireworks of Glass

One of my personal favorite exhibits at the museum was the Fireworks of Glass . I LOVED it so much that I dedicated a blog post with my favorite images of different angles of the tower during our visit.

The Museum is HUGE! It’s actually the world’s largest children’s museum which means that you will need to allow for several hours to really explore the museum.

We were told that we might want to start on the top floor and then work our way down.

Our first stop was Scienceworks, then we submerged ourselves in Chinese culture at the Take Me There: China Exhibit. You can read more about that specific exhibit here.

(There is a new country currently on display)

I loved watching my boys play with the vintage video games from my childhood in the Carousel Wishes and Dreams Exhibit.

There is also a maze of fun and a  carousel that you can ride for free if you are a member and $1 if you are a non member.

The Power of Children Exhibit

The museum did a great job of giving kids an understanding and empathy for difficult parts of our history with The Power of Children: Making a Difference Exhibit that tackled racism and discrimination.
