I’ve made it a personal mission to hit all of the children’s museums in the state. Last month my daughter and I tackled WonderLab in Bloomington. Everything I heard about this place rang true. It was a great spot and made for hours of entertainment with my daughter.My favorite area was Bubble-Airium.In here kids can learn about all types of bubbles, what they look like, how they feel and even pop them!My daughter’s personal favorite was the Grapevine Climber. My mother-in-law even climbed in with her but I promised to not get a picture of that.We also learned a lot from mirrors. Like what it looks like to fly …How to serve your head on a platter …And what my daughter’s face and my face would look like mashed together …Few more things to mention:
WonderLab has been around since 1995 when a core group of volunteers began offering hands-on science services at community events. In 1998 it opened its first physical location and in 2003 moved to its current home off of Fourth and College. Since then more than 740,000 visitors have experienced all there is to do!
After a full two hours before lunch and two more after it as a day full of memories. For more information on dining and attraction options in the area, be sure to Visit Bloomington.
