One of my favorite adventures of our trip to NY was going to the Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester. We went with my sister-in-law Amy and my nephews and had a fun-filled day. There was something for everyone, from 2 to thirty-something...
Strong is the only museum in the world devoted to PLAY! Strong National Museum of Play is an exciting, hands-on, welcoming place to play, learn, and dream; a place to pretend, wonder, and explore; a place to discover the past and imagine the future; and a place to rekindle memories and make new ones. Strong is the only museum in the world dedicated solely to the study of play as it illuminates American culture. (Strong National Museum of Play)
There was so much to see and do...we really needed a week to take it all in and experience everything the museum had to offer but we only had one day so here is what we experienced. No doubt about it-we will be back!!!
Dancing Wings Butterfly Garden, "a lush rain-forest environment and walk among approximately 800 brilliantly-colored, free-flying tropical and native butterflies that flutter about ."
Super Kids Market This was a Mini Wegmans grocery store where the kids experienced the entire grocery shopping experience. They pushed miniature carts around to shop for their groceries, placed their items on a working conveyor belt, and scanned bar-coded products at working checkout registers. They also had fun producing their own cooking show in the WKID-TV station.
Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street.
