Museum of Science and Industry

Well we decided to make use of our membership again and take a trip downtown to the Museum of Science and Industry! That museum is so huge that we spent all day (well, for us all day is about 4-5 hours) and only saw one corner on one floor of the museum! We plan to go a lot and try to see the entire museum throughout our year-long membership! But today, we learned about cows...

And farming - wow those tractors are big!

Then we went to a presentation about poop...that's right, poop! That is what it was called, but it was about digestion. It was a good presentation though.

And look who got to help out!

Then the kids got to "drive" a combine! It was pretty cool because they had a huge screen in front with some fake corn stalks and it showed them plowing the fields on the screen based on their driving. It was a fun exhibit.

There was also a really neat pin ball machine - the biggest in the world! The kids were very fascinated with that and luckily we were able to find a table right next to it to have lunch so the kids could keep watching.

They learned how to work gears...

And there was even rock climbing!

Go Ben!

We learned a lot, had a lot of fun, and realized just how much more there is to see in this museum!
