The water play area was an instant hit with Sister. She and Mister had been talking for days about going bass fishing (thanks, Uncle Tom). When she saw the fishing poles, a smile of pure delight crossed her face, and she started fishing. She fished, and fished, and fished… and fished some more.
Meanwhile, Daddy and Mister had a look at other exhibits.
For a moment, I thought I would have to physically remove Sister from the water play area, if I wanted to see any of the rest of the museum… Oh, wait… Once I did
drag coax her away, we were able to look at many more exhibits.
What better way to end an amazing day, then a chance to splash some more fun in water play? The kiddie zone had a separate water play area, and it was spectacular
Yes, I had to
drag coax her away from this exhibit, as well. LOL.
Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum is a veritable treasure trove, and my family enjoyed our visit immensely. If we lived in the Ann Arbor area, I would not hesitate to purchase an Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum membership, as it would be money well spent!
