    I went on the 16th of June. All I can say is WOW!!!!! . My 8yr. old was fascinated. Be for-warned no photos, it gets very warm in there and be careful of leaning on the glass. The alarms do go off.
    Have a wonderful time and if you can, visit the rest of the museum.

    Tell DH that if he going to whine he will have to sit out with his Mummy lol

    We went to the museum in april to see it and the lines were so long for tickets I knew my 4 yearold would not tolerate it so we did get to the natural sciences museum and the childrens museum. we are going to another convention { husband business} in oct. so I think we will go the franklin then but TUT will be gone by then. We will also check out the Philly Zoo. Erin m.

    Have Fun!

    Quote:I used to love the Franklin Institute as a kid!! But I'm a science geek as it is, lol. Walking thru the human heart was the big thing then.

    The Pilly Zoo is the oldest zoo in the US. Ok, showing my age now, I remember when there were no "habitat" just lots and lots of cages with bars. I have never ridden the monarail. Mom said it was tooo expensive for all us kids. I love "Prarie Dog Town over by the picnic area!! And of course you have to get a soft preztle from one of the vendors out on Girard Ave (sp?) when you leave!!

    These 2 places were required fieldtrips for kids in NJ when I was in school.

    My nephew took his daughter to see Tut when it first opened. They said it was really cool. She wants to be an antrhopologist/paleontogilst (sp?) when she is older. She's wanted this since she was 2!!

    Never been to the Mummer Museum. My hubby thought I was nuts that he and nobody down here knew what a Mummer was, lol

    DH was an American History major so I'm pretty sure that he'll want to see all that stuff.[​IMG]
    I would love to see the Mutter Museum and Edgar Allen Poe's house. I don't think we'll get to the Zoo.[​IMG]
    I always want to go to the Koskiusco Museum and the Polish Museum...wonder why...
    "If you're lucky enough to be Polish, you're lucky enough".
    I also wanted to be a Paleontologist/Archaeologist since I was little. Too bad, that wasn't a "girl" thing and I was dissuaded from it...:thun
