On Sunday, we got to visit the new Austin children’s museum, Thinkery. My mom was so thoughtful, and bought my family a membership for 2014! This past weekend was a members only preview, and they had some extra special treats like a photo booth, cupcakes, and face painting!
Thinkery is so much better than the original children’s museum (which no longer exists). My kids are 9, 7, and 5 and I felt like the museum exhibits were just right for those ages. Any younger*, and I’m sure they will have fun, but not really ENGAGE in most of the exhibits (downstairs). It was fun to watch my kids go from room to room and explore! Let’s start with the downstairs!
* The museum has a baby/toddler room upstairs and a baby/toddler “playpen” downstairs
There was a “backyard” (not pictured), which looked cool, but my kids said it was only “okay” after they played out there. I’m sure younger ones would love it!
All in all, it was a fun experience, and we are looking forward to going back and letting the kids explore and learn some more! Go check it out!
