A trip to visit family over Thanksgiving brought us to north Georgia and a day at the Tellus Science Muesum.
As with most science museums, they had a nice balance of hands-on exhibits as well as visually interesting but not fully interactive. Mining for gems was a hit as well as walking through the dinosaur exhibit.
I have found that it works well to balance a trip by alternating the time the kids are able to play. After the planetarium show we went to the My Big Backyard exhibit so they could run and explore. Here kids can play with light, rainbows, mirrors and more in the greenhouse. The shed is filled with sound experiments, and the garage is a great place to discover the properties of magnets and work with electricity.
