St. George Children’s Museum: Double Thumbs Up
I have taken my kids to A LOT of children museums, interactive science centers, aquariums and other child centered, interactive exhibits in hopes of somehow putting a positive parenting stamp on my children. Of course, some of them are off the charts and some aren’t worth the price of admission—even when they’re free. St. George’s Children’s Museum was a wonderful experience. I admit to being impressed and even a little surprised at the quality of the museum.
You know it’s a hit when the adults are experimenting and playing right along with the kids. One of our boys’ favorite spots is the service station with a car (not real but real enough) that you can check the engine, change the tires, climb under and look at the undercarriage. Last time I was there, I watched two dads just about as enthralled as their kids.
The museum is on two levels. You check in on the upper level and receive a wrist band. The museum is technically free but they suggest a $3.00 donation which is more than fair for what you get. They require that all adults be accompanied by a child. Yes. That isn’t a typo. Adults without children are not allowed to come and wander by themselves. If you really want to see it and you don’t have a child, bring a valid id and a museum guide will escort you through the museum.
The upper floor seems to be geared a little for the younger and the lower floor for the older, but our children were up and down and found things on both floors that they loved.
Perhaps Chris Jones Real Estate Team will sponsor a room in the future where the kids can design and build their dream house. Hmmm….something to think about.
