Do you love touring and visiting museums? I do, especially ones with children’s exhibits. We visited a logging camp museum in Minnesota in August and the family had a tremendous time. Here are my family’s favorite museums to visit. I’ve also added a few places we have never been, but have scheduled to do so as soon as possible.

Owensboro Science and History This gem of a museum is on my list to visit next. I live about 1 hour from Owensboro, Kentucky and my family will enjoy a day here in the very near future. Admission to the museum is only $3.00, and there is plenty of things to see and do. Who knows, maybe I’ll write a post on our visit.


Academy of Natural Science What makes this museum stand out form the many other museums? Thee are many fabulous programs you can participate in. Photography, fossil molds and green living, and wild animal conservation are only a few of the educational learning. Also, you will find many displays and hand-on fun for the kids.

Museums should be a part of our culture. Whether you enjoy art, science, history, or simply excite your senses with the crazy and unique hands-on fun, take your kids to a museum. It’s learning at the highest calling, don’t you think?
