Great Trip Idea For Kids On Vacation

I am always looking for interesting and educational things to do with my kids especially when they are on VACATION. I went last Monday to the Philadelphia Children’s museum. It was outstanding. My 4 kids BH range from 1 to 7 years old and there was something for everyone.  I think it is great up till 8.  Two good pieces of information. 1- Try to go on a Monday when they do not allow school trips. It is much less crowded. 2- Don’t park in the lot for $8 – there is plenty of parking around the museum

The museum is a building from when the worlds fair was in Philadelphia at the end of the 1800′s. The building is spectacular. The exhibits are hands on as well as educational. Here is a link, so you can see the exhibits. http://www.pleasetouchmuseum.org/

    The Please Touch museum is a lot of fun. It isn’t terribly expensive and really, really clean. We had a great day with our three year old.
