Ruby and I met with my Dad and Step-mum at the very impressive Eureka! The National Children’s Museum today. It’s a bit of a trek for us, but it’s an incredible place for kids, especially younger ones.
There’s a fantastic area called ‘All About Me’ where you find out about every single part of your body, just about. It’s age appropriate (no sexy-time shenanigans) but there’s a great area about childbirth, lots of models of internal organs, nerves and cardiovascular bits and pieces, and some enlarged bits of people parts.
My favourite was this enormous mouth, which Ruby enjoyed. She also liked making burps in the alimentary canal display (where she could also create bile).
There are lots of areas for the under 5s, loads of ways to engage the imagination (including a great work-related area) and some fantastic electronic games and experiments to do.
