Something that caught my little ones’ attention was the interactive sound/visual stations. You moved your fingers across a small screen and your movements became bright patterns of color and sound.

It caught my attention as well, because I have something called synaesthesia. I’ve always perceived that letters have specific colors, that pain has not only color but taste as well, and that something too bright can leave me feeling like I’m deaf.

The highlight of our museum trip for our oldest was the robot-building area:


Lastly, the boys had fun figuring out where we live 😀

It was a super fun trip, and it’s only on for sic more days, so if you’re a local and have wanted to see this, this is your chance!
