This past Friday, we went on a field trip with a homeschool group to the Lakeshore Museum Center in Muskegon, MI.
It's a small museum, but it had some great exhibits that the kids enjoyed (and, it's free!)
Their favorite was the Science Center, lots of hands-on, interactive things to do:
pedaling fast enough to power the light bulbs
experimenting with pulleys and weights
Anti-Gravity Mirror (or just a fun, funky mirror!)
Another exhibit showcased local Wildlife Habitat:
Run Bambi! Michiganders love to hunt!!
a fawn calming resting, too young to know about hunters yet!
And the Coming To The Lakes exhibit, showing what brought people to the area through the decades.
logging was one of the biggest reasons early settlers came to the area
what a early settlers' one-room log cabin may have looked like
archaeological evidence has shown that Mastodons once roamed the area
through the window of a typical local mercantile
My next post will be about my personal favorite part of the day; one of the historical buildings that are part of the Museum Center. But I figured this was enough photos for one post.
