Earlier this week I had the opportunity to take a sneak peek along with my son at the new exhibit, Skeletons-El Dia De los Muertos, at the Discovery Science Center. We had a great time exploring the new exhibit and I was extremely impressed with the exhibit’s mixing of science, art and culture. The Spooky Science exhibit does a great job in introducing your kiddos to the colorful Mexican Celebration of El Dia De Los Muertos along with teaching your family about science and forensics. My little one had a good time pointing out the different colors and skeletons. I think older children would love to not only learn about Skeletons but also about the cultural celebration of El Dia De Los Muertos. The exhibit will run everyday through November 8th.
Some of the hands on activities in the exhibit include solving a forensic science mystery, piecing together a skeleton, playing a larger than life Operation game, participating in fun science experiments and exploring a fun and spooky 3D Maze. Day of the Dead Crafts will be featured on the weekend along with special presentations on forensics.
We had a great time and my son had a fantastic time playing throughout the rest of the museum. He LOVES the Discovery Science Center and calls it the Dino Museum. We always have a great time and there is always a tear or two shed when it is time to leave. I hope you can visit soon and check out Skeletons- El Dia De Los Muertos. You will love it!
