Family adventure at the Powerhouse Museum

Today we decided to take the kids on an adventure - to the Powerhouse Museum. I have wanted to see the Wiggles exhibition since it opened. I also REALLY wanted to get our (cabin-fevered) kids out of the house! It was a fantastic day. The kids enjoyed the train trip & the museum itself was awesome, despite the construction work that is happening at the moment.
Train ride
We watched a robot kids show. It had lots of singing and dancing - not much science - but still fun!

Excited to be at the robot show!
We wandered around and looked at some exhibits.
The steam train
The plasma ball
We went to an awesome kids area called The Magic Garden.
This pond was like a "smart board" on the floor - the ripples and fish responded to kids' movement
A cool "green screen" game that responded to kids' movement
Finally, the Wiggles Exhibition!!! This part was so cool! Lots of interactive stuff for kids as well as history, memorabilia etc for adults.
