Visiting museums with preschoolers is certainly and interesting experience. Don't get me wrong, Maddie LOVES visiting museums and is always super excited when we tell her we are visiting one but its an unusual experience.
Last weekend we were desperate to get out of the house after a week of rain and headed downtown to the Nauticus museum. This was actually my third time visiting and I still find it interesting.
Of course with Maddie in tow that means nothing. Instead of reading the plaques I get to admire her bodysurfing on benches. Oh yeah, she totally did that. Despite Maddie's need to speed through the museum we still had a wonderful afternoon.
Hands on activities are always wonderful and greatly appreciated! The Nauticus museum even offers a touch tank, and child friendly theater.
All in all we had a wonderful rainy afternoon at the Nauticus and checking out the Battleship Wisconsin.
Do you visit museums with your preschooler?
Or do you stick to the children's museums in your area?
