Children's Museum Visit

Yesterday, we took the kids to the Indianapolis Children's Museum (thanks to Tom and Donna's family pass), which bills itself as the biggest children's museum in the country.  I can't really argue with that; it's pretty cool.

This is Bumblebee, from Transformers.  He is pretty cool, and pretty big.

The museum had a new exhibit in conjunction with National Geographic.  It is archaelogy based, and deals with the tomb of the pharoah Seti, actual artifacts (including a cannon that is being cleaned) from Captain Kidd's ship found near the Dominican Republic, and an army of terra cotta warriors found in China.  We also visited the Dinosphere, but didn't take any pictures.  It was a great family day!
