Boston Museum of Science

On Saturday we took the kiddies into the city to visit the Harry Potter Exhibition that is on display at the Boston Museum of Science.  We did not buy our tickets ahead of time so when we got there at a little past 1 o’clock, the earliest time we could get into the exhibit was 5:10.  Thankfully they still had slots open – if we got there and they didn’t the kids would have been so bummed.

D insisted on wearing his old Harry Potter robe from Halloween a few years ago.

Seeing as we had a few hours to kill, we visited the other areas of the museum.

Mackenzie got to make her hand stand up by touching the Van de Graaff Generator and then when she touched people she would shock them.

The boys checked out a replica of the Apollo Command Module.

We even went into the beautiful butterfly garden.

There are so many butterflies with vibrant markings.

And then there are some that are not as colorful but still so pretty.

This guy was huge and his wings really did look like tree bark.

We ended the day with the Harry Pottery exhibit. Unfortunately they did not allow any photography inside the exhibit.  I even got reprimanded for taking a picture of this poster.

It was a rather exhausting day but everyone had a blast.

I hope you guys had a great weekend.

Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6.
