Museum Wednesday

The museums are free on Wednesdays. I don't think we have enough Wednesdays for all the museums.

We started the morning at the History Museum. It is one of my favorite or I should write favourite museums (when here spell like you are here). Like so many museums it begins with 4, 000,000 years ago. We just walked quickly through that part. Then they have a section on the old way of life -- living on the fishing boats. That makes my old 700 sq ft flat look large.

Then we move through the history and get to a bit of the colonial period, a mailbox with Queen Victoria's emblem.

The kids were practicing driving a ding ding.

We walked through the exhibits on the Japanese occupation and then to the post war period. The kids enjoyed the museum more than they thought.

Daddy met us for about 2 hours and we headed to the Science Museum. Our first stop was the special exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci which was very interesting. I think that will make a good homeschool rabbit trail study and thus a lapbook. After that, we spent some time in the museum. The World of Mirrors is a fun place. I don't think the picture really shows how funny this mirror was. Miss K is fuzzy because she was busy dancing around.

It was a fun day at the museums.
