Sundays with Gage – Hands on Museums

It’s hard to find museums that are hands on enough to keep Gage occupied.  I’m always on the lookout so if you know of one let me know!  After Christma we went to Michigan to see Jason’s family we visited the city where Jason was born which just happens to be home to the Henry Ford Museum, the perfect place for little boys.  Not only are there cars and planes and trains in all of their massive glory but there was also an area where kids could make their own vehicles and race them against each other.  The highlight of the museum and where Gage spent the most time was the model train area.  He was in heaven.  They have a village outside and maybe we’ll try that on our next warm weather trip.

This museum gets an A+ from us because it kept Gage entertained for hours.  Has anyone else been there?

  1. My sister’s been there! There’s a Children’s Museum here but I’ve never been there so I have no idea what it’s like.

    • We have a children’s museum here too but it’s always a madhouse and not very convenient.

  4. What fun! Mouse would love it there. She really needs an interactive museum too least she gets bored easily. I wish you lived closer, Stacy. Gage would love our Discovery Museum. It’s about an hour drive away, but it’s worth the drive given how much there is to do. If you go early enough in the day, it’s not at all busy.

  5. If you ever make it down to Dayton, there’s a nice little museum there that would be perfect for Gage. It’s Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, and they have a great planetarium.

  9. When my kids were little, we always sought out the museums wherever we traveled, but we haven’t been to this one. Orlando had a wonderful little science museum that we actually had passes to, and the kids just went nuts over.

  11. Been there a million times since I was a child, and every time is a pleasure. The Village is amazing!

  12. Have you been to either the Children’s Museum or the Carnegie Science Center here in Pittsburgh? I’m betting Gage will love both of them.
