Originally planning to explore the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis, due to “no room at any of the inns,” we drove on to Terre Haute where we discovered they had a Children’s Museum of their own. Yes!
Located in the heart of downtown Terre Haute, Indiana, we arrived as soon as the doors opened. Our discoveries far exceeded our expectations: a two-story tree house to climb, a trick mirror to gaze at, a cow to milk, a bubble to stand in, a live beehive to study, a news hour to host, balance and reach to measure, body temperatures to gauge (yes, my body was bright pink on the monitor . . . periomenopausal, Baby!), dinosaur fossils to unearth, and animals to race to name a few.
After 2+ hours, we had to convince the kiddos it was time to eat (at Grand Traverse Pie Company) and make our way home to Illinois.
