Science Museum (Where Children can be Children!) (Practical Mondays # 29)


Don't you just hate going to museums that have terribly antsy guards that get bat shit crazy with little children around? Like the little fellas have just barged into the armageddon with weapons of mass destruction!

But MIM (Museo Interactivo Mirador, Santiago) is just the opposite! It’s a fantastic, sensory place when children can be - children! Get all sciencey or simple just be. 

It’s best to spend all day here, so we went one of the days in the Chilean holiday week (3rd week of September). Since my son’s just 4 years old, I didn’t really bother to get into a teacher mode and instead let him spent hours at the giant bubble station, throw paper planes in the vertical air vent, jump on the floor piano and run around in the park!

There are a million other things to do but instead of talking about it, I’m leaving a link here, of their extremely informative website.

Zucchini is one veggie that everyone in my family loves! And in the spirit of eating Zucchini (with yummy egg plant, broccoli and carrots) just yesterday, I’m bookmarking this trip that we would love to go to!

    1. If he were a little older, I probably would've explained the working of a pulley or brain or something, but instead I just let him be! Thanks Joanne:)

  2. How fun that you've got a museum like that down there! We have a children's museum in town and it's set up for kids to run wild in, but we don't really care for it because it seems so contrived - and nothing very open-ended. Have a great week!

  5. There's a museum quite like this one in Tulsa, OK. They have even built an entire suspended tube/tunnel/slide out of clear packing tape the kids (and adults) can run through, climb and slide down. It's a pretty incredible museum.

  6. We have a science museum in Lodi, CA that's pretty good. Much better than the Children's Museum in Sacramento.

  13. It is just great to know about such fun Science Museum where children can be children! I am sure the kids had blasting time during this museum trip. I am a preschool teacher and I also make sure that my kids have fun when learning. For fun activities I use this website http://www.kidsfront.com/learn_with_fun.html.
