Family Weekend Getaways & Ideas: Aviation Museum
It is cold outside. Which means all of the activities are either subsided or are taken inside. With not as many ways to release their energy and the highs from all of the candy during the holiday season, kids are home and getting restless. A great way to take advantage of all that energy and also for them to learn something is to take them to a museum. These places of various collections have a lot of indoor space and usually are more or less supervised and are great for family winter weekend getaways.
One thing to keep in mind when bringing your child is to determine which museum is right for them and how long you plan on being there. Children's museums have a lot of interactive exhibits, some offer crafts areas, and other fun activities. These are usually better for the younger kids. They are more likely to be engaged and playing for a bit longer period of time. This also means they will get hangry and need to make sure you plan for a snack break. Pack a backpack with water and light dry snacks for your trip.
History and cultural museums tend to be more adult and older children oriented, so you would want to make sure that you are planning to be there for only a couple hours before your child starts the get antsy.
Over the weekend we took our energizer bunny to the Cradle of Aviation Museum
