What is there to do?

If you have older kids who love science and tech, then you might want to head to New Mexico's Bradbury Science Museum.

Today, there are around 60 interactive exhibits that cover a range of topics that can fascinating and educate those curious kids. 

The exhibits have more depth than a regular children's museum, as they are all based around laboratory projects. Kids can trace the history of WWII's Manhattan Project, as well as looks in depth as the lab's current and historic research projects, all related to tech and defence.

The exhibits also focus on the laboratory research when it comes to economics, as well as the environment, and politics.

Kids can learn if they can power their lives just by using pond scum, and even see how scientists can design and create structures from nanoparticles. 

The Tech Gallery is where kids can get hands-on with the activities, as well as check out the temporary displays like the Technology on Mars one.

There are brain games to test the kids, and a play area for the younger kids, which will keep them really entertained!

The Bradbury Science Museum is a great learning experience for the kids, especially those ones with curious minds and hands and love to know how things work!
