Children's Museum in London, Ontario

The girls and I spent the day in London, Ontario a couple of days ago.

The Children's Museum was a lot of fun for Celeste. I personally wouldn't call it a museum. I think it would be better named "Children's Discovery Centre". It was a huge playground for Celeste, which was wonderful for her.

The museum is divided into different rooms. We visited the Dinosaur room :

We liked this whale tail on our way to the Arctic room:

and this stained glass window:

The museum had a special exhibit on the Winter Olympics. The girls tried out a couple of the stations set up, skiing and paralympic hockey:

on the podium!

Celeste's favourite section is next...
She loved the little town set up there, playing in the grocery store, the McDonalds, and the house.

There was an interesting space area too:

Adrienne and I enjoyed watching the Poi demonstration at the end of our visit, on the museum's grounds.  Poi comes from New Zealand and is mesmerizing to watch. One of the performers skipped with a rope full of fire! There was also a fire breather. They handed out some of their tools at the end of the performance for the kids to give it a try (without the fire part!). Adrienne loved it!
