My oldest has told me that I could be a tour guide of our area because I know a lot of places so during April. I’m going to share some of those local sights beginning with A and then ending with the letter Z. I’ll be sharing these sights Monday through Saturday. On Sundays, I’ll be continuing to share my Disney photos.
So where are these local sights? They are mostly in the Dayton, Ohio area. Some of them are in Columbus or the Cincinnati area.
Today we are going to visit one of the boys’ favorite places from when they were younger. Actually it’s still a favorite place for both of them. We just don’t visit it as often.
Boonshoft Museum of Discovery is located about ten minutes from the downtown Dayton area. It’s close to Triangle Park where Former President Obama spoke during his 2012 campaign.
The museum hosts a Harry Potter Camp every year. Let me take that back. This year is going to be the last year for the Harry Potter camp. The boys each attended and enjoyed three of those camps. The Imaginative One was sorted into Gryfindor and the Wee One was sorted into Slytherin.
The boys also enjoy the climbing tower in the middle of the museum. When they were younger, I would have to climb the rope ladder and then the other areas with them. As they got older, they would climb those areas by themselves.
Another feature of the museum is their area for children five and under. It’s a nice area to allow your toddler explore.
We also enjoy their indoor zoo. They have otters there. The parents of the otters used to live at the Columbus Zoo. I don’t know if they still do or not.
Here are some photos of Boonshoft:
Here are photos from our visit on April Fool’s Day.
Join me tomorrow as we travel an hour east to Columbus for our local sight that begins with the letter C.
Have a magical day!
