When we went to the library, we got in line to get ourselves a library card. Lucky us, the people in front of us were returning the Field Museum pass; so I snatched it right us and we went to the museum right after nap time.
The public libraries have a great system here where they have one pass to each of the museums here in town, which you can check out and get free admission. With the closest library it’s rare to find the pass you want when you want, if at all. The passes are always checked out. So we got pretty lucky to get such a good pass right then.
When you walk into the Field Museum you have to go down a hall lined with pictures before you get to the ,aim part of the museum. When we got to the first picture C1 got super excited and we almost had to drag him down the hall to even get to the attractions. We stopped and played in the children’s play section for a bit. We had fun in the music room playing as loud as we could. Playing on the farm, picking corn.
We walked around and saw all the stuffed animals, the birds, jungle, ocean, all sorts of wild animals. These are both Interesting and freaky to me. I love to be able to see them up close and all, but I’m afraid of them as well, I fear they are going to come to life and get me.
We all had a good time and hope to give our kids this kind of learning experiences often. Thank you Chicago public library for providing us the free pass.
