Another trip to Tellus - well worth the trip! Tuesday, the day of the trip, was cold and rainy. A nice day for an inside museum trip, although we had to travel an hour each way in the rain and "weather". It seemed to be an ideal day for several other groups too - we saw at least 6 school buses parked in the lot and had many groups going through the various exhibits. We noticed they seemed to focus on one main area ie: geology; paleantology; - perhaps they're local groups that get to come often and get to focus on one area at a time - nice!
Since this was our second trip here within a year, I'll try not to duplicate TOO many photos, other than the one measuring against the large truck tire! You can see how the girls have grown over the last 10 months.
|I'll add this one to the previous one so you can compare the heights, too.|
|An interesting looking malachite.|
|A cute astronaut.|
|Caption below describes this one.|
|I can't help including these little snippets of riveting information.|
|Ah yes, why didn't they include some of these in the gem mining area!!??|
|Here again in the gem mining area. It's really neat that they let the children (and adults, thankyouverymuchwepayquiteabitmorethanthechildrentobabysitthemforyou!!) collect real (little, teensy tiny) semi-precious stones.|
|Blending in with another group.|
And so, around 3:30 or later, we headed for home, hopefully with heads filled with all kinds of useful knowledge!
