An afternoon at the museum

There was a photographic exhibition I wanted to see at the New Walk museum and gallery in Leicester and the boys love the interactive displays so we spent a rainy Saturday afternoon at the museum.

Reuben works the controls for the large wall display of marine dinosaurs
At the same time Isaac sees details of the featured dinosaur
Elements from the museum are represented in foam tiles that children can
play with on this wall display
Reuben and Isaac learn about marine dinosaurs
Flying model gliders in the park outside the museum
Sort by shape or colour?
The Autumn leaves are great for dramatic glider landings, Isaac is holding
his red dinosaur glider
The boys find out about evolution, Darwin and the tree of life. The museum
has an interactive programme and video narrated by David Attenborough
