|Climbing up to the top.|
We decided I'd finally take our little guy to the Pittsburgh Children's Museum for the first time. If you ever get the opportunity to take your child...GO! We had an absolute blast that day and typically our family isn't an all day venue type of family unless it's a pool or beach for vacation but we spent about five hours visiting. I highly recommend it and my guy was a little skeptical because he didn't think it would be hands-on and playing with momma all day. The museum has so many things to do for all ages of little ones. Even when you first enter they have this monstrous climbing maze that goes up into the second floor but is caged so they can't fall but parents can see their children at all times. I even ran to the top of the second floor when he got to the very top to surprise him. "Mom, how did you even get up here?" It was cute because he didn't see the stairs. My son actually stayed climbing up and down for quite some time. He gained more confidence of his climbing abilities each time. Bracing himself against the cage to reach areas he wouldn't normal be able to reach.
|Pulling and pushing the levers|
|to make this guy move.|
I have to say we went to each exhibit/area and tried almost everything, from the circuitry station to running on a kids treadmill making the gears spin in order to rotate the tires. We pulled levers to move this big wooden guy and let me tell you, it took all 38 pounds of my son to pull and push some of the levers, but he loved that when he really tried, he successfully made the guy move.
The last exhibit we visited was the arts center, which in hindsight we probably should have done first so everything he made could dry but we will know for next time.
I highly recommend and strongly urge you to take your child or children and visit if you can. We had a great, fun day.
