NOT a science museum.
NOT an art museum.
It was a lot more fun than either of those.
Rochester is home to the National Museum of Play.
I was wishing I had young children once again as we walked through this wonderful place. But after a while, I realized that anyone of any age can enjoy this museum. It was just plain fun!
The huge aquarium at the entrance was full of interesting fish!
Annie really liked this one with the protruding teeth.
Everywhere you looked, there was a quote on the wall about the
importance of play.
One of the first things we came upon was a replica of the Sesame Street set.
Vance and Annie played a few tunes on these musical pipes.
Then Annie and I climbed a skyscraper!
Vance was occupied watching the tarantula...
while Annie and I made ourselves into superheroes!
Nobody is too old to play pretend!
Then there was a section of the museum devoted to "classic" toys of the past.
Before leaving, we stopped at the Skyliner Diner which is actually inside the museum...
and we each got a scrumptious soft-serve cone.
Annie got a photo of all use using the mirror on the ceiling of the diner!
