Greenville's much anticipated Children's Museum held a Gala Event last night, July 23, 2009 for adults only to pre-view the museum and raise funds. We were able to attend and take a few photos of some of the exibits. There were areas teaching about airplanes and cars and health, all were very interactive and used video game / simulator type technology to engage the kids/adults. Lee had a hard time leaving the Space Shuttle simulator and I saw a large crowd of males around the construction crane and building blocks...these were only a few of the many ingeniuous exhibits which will engage your children young and old. It was even suggested that an adults evening should be part of the regular schedule so adults could come in play clothes and climb, build, design and generally enjoy all the museum had to offer as well. One tip for your kids is to bring a change of clothes so they can get wet to their heart content in the water table areas!
Here are some of the photos from last night...
More of the Climbing structure with handicapped access.
The recycling monster. Really cool.
Lee in the Reedy River water table dome. He's just a big kid.
Lee Cunningham on the see through climbing wall.
One big stomach complete with stomach sounds which will thrill the kids. The slide makes, yes you guessed it, flatulance sounds. :)
