Augusta Children's Museum

Today we spent most of the afternoon in a nice children's museum in Augusta Maine. We did not know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. We spent several hours there doing a variety of hands on play activities. We began upstairs where the kids played in a sandbox, climbed on a tractor, built things, played on a slide, read books, did puzzles, played games and a variety of other things.

Then we moved downstairs to what we discovered was the majority of the museum. The kids put on a show, Serona even treated us to a puppet show about a fox and a mouse. We went grocery shopping, ran a post office, served us a meal at a dinner and played with the other exhibits.

Overall the kids had a great time and it was a fun family day. We had lunch at a nearby cafe that even had good vegetarian options for us. If you are ever in the area and have small children I recommend the Augusta Discovery Museum. It was a good value for the money.

    Throw a big kiss up central Maine way for me.
