Have you visited the Fort Worth Museum Science & History lately? There’s so much to do there!!
This is Not a sponsored post. ~~~This is mine and Brody’s visit ~~~
I took Brody last Friday, Jan 3, 2014 – it was just the 2nd busiest day of the year for the Museum. Evidently, it was the famous Curious George’s last weekend to be there, so needless to say it was crowded. Luckily, we got there early enough not to have to wait in line too terrible long for the exhibits and things to do. I had bought a annual membership, so we go as often as we can.
The Children’s area is Brody’s second favorite place to play. Can you think of his first favorite? I’ll show you that further down.
In through here (below) – where Brody is going through the fence is the “emergency/doctor” area. Kids can play doctor and nurse dress up, pretend they are in an ambulance and even see themselves on the screen.
They have a section in the Children’s area that the kids can actually pretend they are in a grocery store, and they get to do all the shopping. There’s store carts, baskets and even a cash register. This place is the most popular among the all kiddos. Brody is shopping for can goods.
This area can get quite messy at times. With play food going down the conveyer belt and some tumbling down to the ground, and with kids trying to get in line for their turn. It’s really hilarious watching the kiddos do what their parents do on a weekly basis (sometimes on a daily basis) at the grocery store.
This play cash register sounds as close as the real thing.
Here’s another part of the Children’s area that Brody likes. A huge track for cars and trains. Lots of room for kids to get involved with moving vehicles. On the left side of this is an area where kids can dress up as a construction worker…with the yellow coat, yellow hard hat and even a red stop sign.
Ok, here’s Brody’s favorite area of the whole Museum. It’s the Dinosaur Exhibit. I believe it’s a permanent exhibit. I hope so, because we both love it. This dinosaur here is huge and worth seeing. Lots of information and things to do about dinosaurs.
This is Brody’s favorite thing to do in the dinosaur exhibit. He uses his finger to drag the dinosaur parts towhere they are suppose to go on the body. He FINALLY can do this by himself. There’s about 4, maybe 5 different dinosaurs to choose to learn about their body parts. Very educational, uh? This exhibit is probably the main reason I will be getting another annual pass when mine expires in April of this year. I can take up to 5 people with this pass and it was only $100 for the entire year. Some exhibits do cost extra, but for membership holders it’s a reduced price.
This is a puzzle that many can work on at the same time with huge parts so you can really see how a dinosaur was built.
Now on to my favorite thing to do at the Museum…The Omni/IMAX Theater. I chose the Rocky Mountain Express movie to watch. Brody fell asleep!!! Oops, not the best one for him, but a busy one for many. It excited him at first, but it did get pretty slow towards the end. So keep that in mind if you do go. A nice gentleman saw that I was trying to take a “selfie” of us and offered to take our picture. Brody kept acting up, so I told the nice man to just take it!
All aboard! Rocky Mountain Express will propel you on a
steam train journey through the breathtaking vistas of the Canadian
Rockies, highlighting the adventure of building the nation’s first

We had a fun day and Brody was so good for me which is an added bonus. Can’t wait to go back. Oh, and they’ve added a brand new exhibit – A part of the falling towers of 911. Check out the Museum any time http://www.fwmuseum.org/
