It’s one of those places where you scratch your head and ask yourself, “Why didn’t we go here before?”
We’ve passed by Melbourne Museum gazillion times. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of museum. I always think of paintings and sculptures attached to it. I’m not really an art lover. I’m just pretending to be!
So when the Captain suggested we give it a try, I was a bit apprehensive. Actually I was interiorly reluctant. The clincher was that kids go free. You know how many kids we have right?
Now, I’m a big FAN!
You can spend the whole day there. Well, as for us, we only spent about 3 hours. That’s how much my back can take from walking before my joints completely disintegrate and before my mind gives up from answering multi-layered questions from ten thousand kids. But my children can live there if I give them that choice.
There’s a children gallery for kids 0-5 yo.
There’s a dinosaur walk. A wild animal section.
The World War I exhibit broke my heart.
My favorite one is the section on human body and how the brain works. Fits a geek like me.
There is the Forest Secret which is a forest in the middle of the city. Reminded me of the Dandenong Ranges. Sort of.
The thing I enjoyed the most were hanging out and sitting at the beach seats. Alfresco.
I think we should make it a yearly thing to check out the museum. It’s actually suitable for a scientist like me rather than for an artist.
