I’ve put off writing this post, not because I didn’t want to, but because I knew that I would have nearly too much to share. Yes, there may be a slight picture overload, but the Museum of Natural Curiosity was so fantastic and we had so much fun over so many visits that I couldn’t help but share a lot.
Thanksgiving Point, in Lehi, Utah, is an amazing place for families. In addition to the new museum (it opened this past May) Thanksgiving Point has gardens, the Museum of Ancient Life (aka the Dinosaur Museum), Farm Country, movie theaters, restaurants, and more. We had originally planed on spending time at Farm Country and the Dino museum, but we had such fun at the Museum of Natural Curiosity that we kept going there over and over.
Here’s the scoop from the Thanksgiving Point website:
With more than 400 interactive experiences, you can choose a new adventure each time you visit the Museum of Natural Curiosity. In Rainforest, explore the ancient ruins and chambers, crawl inside the 45-foot-tall monkey head, and pretend to fly the Piper Cub. At Water Works, explore science with water, wind, sun, and earth, or go to the Discovery Garden to learn about nature and the six simple machines in the Archimedes Playground. You can even explore the town of Kidopolis, where you’ll discover secret passageways, perform tricks at the magic shop, and run one of the locomotives at the train station. For more educational opportunities, visit the Exploratorium exhibit in the Innovation Gallery or take a class in one of the Dickson Academy classrooms. The options are endless for all curious minds at the Museum of Natural Curiosity.
I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking. My kids and nieces and nephews (ranging in age from 7 months to 15 years) were all thoroughly entertained and couldn’t wait to go back…and back…and back.
