Our day at the Austin Children's Museum was fun, but I must admit, it was also part boring.
Either Alyssa didn't understand the different activities and stations, or she was completely bored by them. I know I was bored with most of them, but I'm an adult. I still tried to get her to play at each station.
Every Monday morning, the Austin Children's Museum has Baby Bloomer's time. It's from 9am-12noon. It was a good time to not have bigger kids running around and knocking the little kids over. Many of the kids go every single Monday, so they knew the lay of the land.
Alyssa had the most fun with the "interactive" stuff like the story time, sing along, finger painting, and parachute time! She was a little stiff at the first activity, but once she felt the people out and got comfortable, she was clapping, dancing, and popping bubbles with the rest of them.
Her favorite?? Banging on the drums in the back room where it talked about Mexican Heritage. This was the best room as she was the most playful in here. Along with the drums, she liked the ladybug step-stools and the tunnel to crawl through.
Overall, I'm not sure this could be an every Monday event like some of the other kids, but maybe once a month as her likes and dislikes tend to change.
If you're a non-member, it's $8 for the museum and $4 for parking. Members pay only $4 for the Museum and $3 for parking. Sounds like a nice perk if you go fairly often.
The next venue? I heard to check out Zilker Park's kid section and their Choo-Choo Train!
