Museums

SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY MUSEUMS: Minnesota through Canada Science museums are for adults and for kids. Many have hands-on exhibits and usually have great kits, games and books available. This list is from the Association of Science Technology Centers (1025 Vermont Avenue, NW, Suite 500, Washington, DC 20005. Phone: (202) 783-7200). Museums are listed alphabetically by name within U.S. state or Candaian province. Learning certainly can be fun! And if you need to polish your kids' museum etiquette before a trip, visit a local science museum for some fun, painless practice. And if you just can't get your kids to sit still for a trip to a museum, how about a space museum? These aren't video games--this is the real stuff!
