America on Wheels
Yesterday, we visited the America on Wheels museum. I am not a "car buff" by any means, but I enjoyed seeing the exhibits. The kids are so into cars right now (even Maddie!), so they enjoyed their visit a lot!
There was a Photo Op Spot to be driving a race car!
And a huge display about Mack Trucks - including a cab where you could "drive."
Throughout the museum there were plenty of "hands on" activities for the kids to learn and explore.
And I enjoyed the nostalgic presentation that went along with many of the displays.
On the second floor, we found a room just for kids - complete with license plate rubbings to make! We also found a neat education room too (which is perfect because we are considering a Girl Scout field trip there this fall!).
There was even a working jukebox - 5 songs for a quarter! We enjoyed The Lion Sleeps Tonight the most!
