I’m going to let you in on a thrifty secret for anyone who might hit this museum. Parking is super expensive, $18 for under ground park. But if you park behind the museum (next the space entrance) its only $5 !!!!
Yep, way better deal. Plus the building is so pretty. You never get to see it if you go straight in :)
There’s so much to see there. Our first stop is always the baby chicks. Its always special to be able to see one hatch.
I spy windows……of course my little princess was stuck at this window for a while. So many fairy tales in one place!The model trains are always fun. You can follow them from the city to the farm lands & back.
The detail of the city & neighborhoods are amazing.
(Allison will like this one!….) When we stop for lunch we always sit close to the “Jollyball”. Its basically a giant pin ball machine. The ball rolls down & around setting off trains, cows, bells etc. It was created for a travel advertisement for the Swiss National Tourist office. It hits all of Switzerland’s main attractions.
We stopped off to see the Wright Brothers replica plane. This one is special to us. My MIL & her company helped build the engine for this plane. It was very exciting!
Before it made it to the museum they got to take it out for a trial run! When it was placed in the museum they had a big dinner for everyone ( including us !! ) in the exhibit. Then we were able to roam the museum. Since it was closed it was that much more fun!
There are so many other great spots to see here!
Astronaut ice cream! Tried a new flavor…..mint chocolate chip…yum!
Happy weekend everyone :)
