Air and Space Museum

We had decided to go to the Air and Space Museum on the mall on Sunday as there was to be a book signing but three astronauts. The museum didn’t open until 10am but we got there early and still had to queue (luckily in the shade). This is one of the most visited museums. Once we got in a queue was already forming for the booking signing. We decided it would be too much to ask the kids to stand in yet another queue so we decided to tour the museum. Like all the museums we have visited there is just so much to take in that one visit can’t do it justice. The highlights of the museum were seeing the astronauts if only from a distance, viewing some of the equipment and lunar modules used on the Apollo missions as well as the early days of flight exhibition. The children got to touch moon rock. Terry and the kids went on a ride simulator taking them on a trip round the planets. I chickened out due to not coping with sudden movements very well! From what Terry told me that would have been nothing to worry about and I have probably been on worse at Disneyland!

 

The disappointment of the day came when we found out that the shop had run out of bobble head Einsteins which Eleanor is very keen on getting. We have seen them at the Castle so we will have to pay visit there before we leave town.
