A Morning at the Museum

Yesterday morning Becky and I brought Brooke and Courtney to the Discovery Museum in Bridgeport.

The theme on the main level was the guitar where there were dozens of different kinds of guitars on display including some very interesting early instruments.

Other themes in the museum were space, energy, light and sound. Also, there was a fair amount of 'hands on' stuff for kids including a small basketball court that was part of a larger display honoring the founder of basketball, James Naismith.

But of all of those things the biggest hit was a mock up of a school bus. The outside looked like a bus with flashing lights and it was painted yellow. Inside there was a steering wheel, blank dashboard and a bench seat for a couple of passengers.

The girls loved pretending they were driving us to school and yelling at us to be quiet. They returned to it over and over again. Go figure.
