I feel like there are so many fun things to do in the area and we always make a mental note of doing something, but then time slips through our hands and we find yet another Saturday come and gone. But we did manage to set aside some time for a morning at the Discovery World with a quick trip to Sonic afterward for a delicious cherry limeade. We bought a reciprocal membership that gets us into several museums around the country, including a couple in Chicago. I love memberships like this (this one purchased at a steal of a deal – $37!) because we can go to the museum and leave whenever the kids get tired, without feeling as though we need to get our “money’s worth”. It makes the experience a little more enjoyable.
The Discovery World is located right on Lake Michigan in Milwaukee. It has some beautiful views with large spacious windows spanning the area. It is definitely geared towards an older child. Hallie had fun, but didn’t understand a lot of the exhibits which are centered around science and technology. Steve and I really liked it, but couldn’t really get into it with two children who were a little bored.
We got half way through the exhibit before Hunter was more than we could handle and it wasn’t worth fighting him anymore. We headed home, but not before stopping for a little liquid gold – Sonic Cherry Limeade. We’ve made a mental note, to go back and check out the rest of the exhibits!
