Boonshoft Museum Visit
We went to the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery. I loved this place. There is so much to see and do. This is a great place to take kids or to go and have fun as adults ( I think you are never to old to have fun). This place is unlike any other museum I have been to. They have a interactive science center, a children's museum, a planetarium and a zoo. They don't have a zoo as big as regular zoo's, but the one they do have is great. They had a bobcat, otter's, snakes and other animals. This is a museum that you can spend a couple of hours at or the whole day. There is so much that you will see and learn. I had a blast and I even got to pet a starfish which was pretty awesome :)
You can learn more about the museum by visiting their web page at boonshoftmuseum.org
They are open Monday-Saturday 9:00am -5:00pm and Sundays 12:00pm-5:00pm
Admission is Adults $12.00 Children ( ages 3-16) $9.00 Seniors ( 60+) $10.00 and children under age 3 and museum members are free. Your admission also includes the shows they have at the planetarium. The day we were there, they were showing 4 different shows, we saw the 7 wonders of the world one and we loved it. I think every day they offer different shows. There is no restaurant in the museum, but they do have vending machines that have a wide variety of food and drinks. You can also bring your own food.
They also have different programs going on so if you plan to go check out their web page to see what is going on there the day you are going.

Hope you get to check them out and have as much fun as we did :)
