It was quite amazing. We saw span of things from the Wright Brothers' Plane . . .
to the Atomic Bomb. (Incredible photography, huh?!)
This was the first of the computer-guided missiles. Am I the only one who had a computer like this in Elementary School? We played Oregon Trail on it. It had five-inch floppy disks that were actually floppy. It often needed to re-boot and liked to display the helpful: syntax error. They used this same computer to direct missiles. Hmmm.
Anyway, our second pod was a great sport and our boy was in heaven.
The third child, was not. She sat in the stroller the whole time. When I asked her her favorite part of the museum, she said, the leaf room. This was a corridor between hangers that had dead leaves on the glass ceiling.I am so glad I have children and that I get to educate them. I would never have learned so much about planes and rockets and space exploration if I hadn't had a child who asked questions I couldn't answer. I enjoyed seeing the objects we had studied so in-depth.
But, my favorite part of the museum? The three-year old pod begging for a souvenir.
I want a missile! I just want a little missile, Mom!
