Last week we took a short afternoon trip to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science in downtown Raleigh. Since they opening the new wing I’ve been wanting to take Jude to check it out. The new wing, The Nature Research Center includes the SECU Daily Planet (an immersive, three-story, high-definition, multimedia space), Research Labs, Investigate Lab, Window on Animal Health, Citizen Science Center, and Science Panorama. Most of the new wing is geared toward an audience slightly older than Jude but he still enjoyed looking at all the exhibits and of course pushing all the buttons.
Most of Jude’s favorite exhibits were in the original wing.
We weren’t able to visit all of the exhibits but the great thing about the NC Museum of Natural Science is that it’s free so we can go back any time we like. It makes for a perfect rainy day outing.
We have less than a week until Jude starts school but we’re working away at our Summer Bucket List.
