As you guys can probably guess from the lack of posts this weekend, I was pretty much offline over the 3-day Holiday Weekend. We went up to the Hartford, CT area – where most of my roots are from, and where my 91-year-old grandmother lives.
One of the days we were up in town, we decided to take the boys to the somewhat new CT Science Center in downtown Hartford. I was so impressed by the experience that I knew I’d be writing it up.
In layman’s terms (i.e. my own non-science-oriented opinion), this center is a family-oriented spot dedicated to letting kids and families get hands-on as they learn about the earth, technology and innovation. I’ll let the pictures (and my captions) do the rest of the talking.
Overall, a great time at the Science Center. Other tidbits worthy of a mention: We also attended the 3D Movie – Wild Ocean, which was fab. We ate lunch in the cafeteria, which was more like a high-end bistro – would totally eat there again, just for the meal! Oh and we got half off on admission tickets because my Dad was with us – he’s an army veteran and they give discounted prices to people who served and their family!
Highly recommend visiting the CT Science Center to anyone who lives in the Hartford area, or who will be traveling there in the near furture. And if you can’t get there, at least follow their pet box turtle – he has a Twitter account (imaboxturtle)!
