A Place Fun for Kids and Grown Ups

Today, my cousins & I went to The Franklin Institute to see the Titanic Exhibit before it closes. We went at 9:00AM to get the tickets but the next available show wasn’t until 3:30PM so we explored the other exhibits. There are a bunch of interactive contraptions all around the institute but my favorite has to be the ElectriCity exhibit. There is this awesome metal ball that gives you a shock when you touch it. As a prank, you can just hold on to it (if you can!) and touch people that walks by. You can even see the spark of electricity which is probably dangerous if done a lot.

The kids definitely seemed like they had a blast. It has been a while since we have all gone to something like this.

There were lots of fun games for kids and big kids to play!

Some of the fun contraptions/activities included: racing to see who could pull their weight the fastest, racing wheel chairs, making paper and this awesome stool that makes fog horn noises as you bounce on it!

She is now 4 years old and has been sitting very properly lately. Her mom says she even sits like that in bed.

So yummy!

During our wait for the Titanic, we left for lunch at Mekong River. My brother had pad thai once a while back and it popped into my mind when we sat down so I ordered the shrimp pad thai. It was really good and a huge dish!

Back at the Titanic exhibit, we were not allow to take photos and it was super crowded since it was the last day. If you are into the history of the Titanic then this exhibit may have interested you, otherwise.. You would have rushed through it like me; The enormous amount of people also contributed to me wanting to leave quickly. I wish we would have gone a different day to experience it better. There was a big cold wall “iceberg” at the end that we were allowed to touch though.

Has anyone been to the Franklin Institute? Can anyone make some good pad thai?
