The transferring process from red line to green line took a while and then the last train that we wanted to get on was soo crowded and full that we made the call to just walk the last few blocks to the museum much to the chagrine of Spencer. But it was a beautiful day for a walk. When we got to the museum, we flashed our reciprocal museum pass from Evergreen and still had to buy two tickets for the "extra" kids. At their price, we really appreciated our pass for the rest of us. There was so much to see and do at the museum.
Here are some of the highlights:
|Old hat T (subway) riders...Spence and Brock are snoozing|
|Brighton was startled to see his name in the sidewalk|
on our walk from the T station to the museum
|Is he famous or something?|
|Exhibit on models - giant grasshopper|
|Create your own computer animated fish, tag it(name it) and release it and watch|
it interact with other fish. There were all these little fish called BEN swimming around. LOL
|Spencer in the hurricane chamber - hearing and feeling nearly 80mph winds|
|Skylar (Ben) in the same chamber totally hamming it|
|Brynna with "Cliff", a nearly complete skeleton of a triceratops (one of only 5)|
|A model of the only T-Rex footprint in existence|
|Humerus (upper arm) bone of a brachiosaurus|
|Ben watching a turtle swim up and down|
|"Lyuba", a baby wooly mammoth that was found in 2007 in Siberia; she died|
at about 1 month old.
At the end of the day, we were all pretty tired and very hungry and we decided not to do the Duck Tour and we hit Mandarin Chef Chinese restaurant in Foxboro for dinner on the way back to the trailer.
