Anchorage Museum

About a month ago the kids and I checked out the Anchorage Museum with our kids group - Alaska Kids. They have a whole kids section called the Imaginarium as well as a regular museum and planetarium inside. On the first day we only made it into 2 of the rooms. We've since explored other parts of the museum but there is still much more to see. We bought a year pass as it will be a great place to take them during the winter when we need to get out of the house.
Reagan's favorite place is the first picture. It's like a water bed and supposed to be the ocean and they get to jump and play on it. Since her favorite thing to do (after singing) is jumping this doesn't surprise me. And it reminds me of the many hours (Oops, did I say hours?) I spent as a kids jumping on Mom and Dad's water bed. Remember Erin and David?
One of Daniel's favorite places is this little boat area. What kid isn't going to want to play in the water? There is so much to see and do here. They have Jelly fish and a turtle named "Chomper". The kids learn about how volcanoes are made and make them out of wax. What happens to houses in an earthquake? How to make a hot air balloon rise. Daniel wants to go every week.
