Have you guys been to The Leonardo in Salt Lake City? Right now, they are hosting Body Worlds (which is equally awesome) but they also have a whole floor dedicated to learning in an amazing way. You can purchase General Admission tickets that gets you into all the exhibits except for the Body Worlds.
The Exhibits are so cool, honestly, they were good for the adults as well for the kids. While the kids went right up for the hands-on displays, we (the parents) wanted to stop and actually read everything.
The photos above are from Pixel Playland. We debated about whether or not we should actually try to write out "Salt Project" with all the pixels, but it was definitely worth the extra effort!
The Water Exhibit was also a favorite. Who knew water was so important? I mean, yes, we know it is, but some times we take it for granted, a little too much probably.
There is just so much crazy stuff to look at. I feel like we were in a "Where's Waldo" book or something. They had computer stations, still movie stations, green backgrounds, spooky exhibits, Lego exhibits and all sorts of crazy things!
The paper interactive area was fun too.
The kids made collages with different papers and glue, stamped and then made some origami cranes to take home.
This X-ray spot was super cool too. I was a little worried we'd see some broken bones or something, but luckily, it all seemed intact.
On the second floor there are some amazing exhibits, like, almost too many to see and do. The science room there was WAY cooler than any science room we've seen before. The chalk board walls, skeletons, tarantulas, I mean, really, you could probably sit there for a few hours just trying to name everything.
The neon fish were especially crazy, I grew up with neon fish, and they didn't glow like these bad boys.
There was so much to see and do, we barely scratched the surface. Granted, we did have 2 babies under a year, and really, Harmony's two babies were screaming the whole time...so it was just time to go. It would actually be pretty fun to go back and take the husbands for a date night.
The kids (Ages 8, 6, 4) rated it a 5 out of 5 day! They loved it.
If you guys are looking for a good indoor activity for the kids, make sure to head to the Leonardo. If you have even more time after, check out the Salt Lake Library right next door. (We'll be posting about that later too.)
