Local Museum

We haven't been to this local museum in a while, but an exhibit on Ancient Chinese Civilizations on loan from the ROM drew us there today with some friends. The exhibit was wonderful, with hands-on activities for the kids, and beautiful artifacts for the adults to admire. It is astonishing to look at a beautifully lacquered bowl and know that it is 3000 years old. WOW. The kids were particularly drawn to the Navy play area on the main floor, and had a blast playing dress up and protecting their ship from attacking pirates.
