    Tulsa Air and Space Museum (TASM) ~Tulsa, OK

    Friday, February 16th, 2018

     

    We ended up buying a membership to the Tulsa Air and Space Museum because memberships usually make more sense than paying what it costs for our large family to go once.

    I am glad we did because part of the museum was not open.

    It would have been really annoying if we did not have the option to come back anyway because it is a really small museum so part of it being closed is a bigger deal than if it was a larger one.


    That being said, the staff in the museum were amazing.

    They had so much knowledge and shared it over and over with my kids!

     

    They would just finish explaining something to one set of my kids and then turn around and do the same with next set.

    Sometimes doing the same thing three times.

    And he treated even my littlest like they could do it.

    Although it is a small museum there are several hands-on things to do.

    He helped them to “land” this hot air balloon.

    You stand inside a hot air balloon basket and have to pull the ropes at the right time to land on a bullseye.

    There is a small kids area upstairs.

    This is the look she gets every time I take too many pics of her.

    They have a really nice planetarium also and the show was pretty good.

    They ended up adding some stuff to the show and it got a bit long for some of mine.

    I also get motion sick from those shows.

    Ha

    I am excited about going back when we are studying about the Space Race next month!

    I am actually happy we went before we started our study as well.

    I have found that if you introduce a subject in a fun way before you study it, kids have an easier time learning about it.

    How do you get your kids interested in subjects?

    This is another great museum on the Oklahoma Museum Network.

    They had a workshop area to take apart electronics and build things!

    Little Bit was not happy about taking apart a toy instead of playing with it.

    The boys really liked it though!

    Little House on the Prairie Museum ~Independence, KS

    We stopped at the Little House on the Prairie Museum on our way up to see family in Minnesota.

    Laura Ingalls Wilder lived here with her parents when she was a child and it inspired the series of books she later wrote.

    They have an old post office and school that they moved to the location as well.

    It was really neat to see the cabin that is a replica of the one she lived in.

    I am hoping that seeing the spot that inspired the books would help them come to life so I bought these two while there!

    I found it really interesting that in the books they journey from Minnesota to Kansas and we were heading to Minnesota as well!
