When I decided to take both Big (2.5 yrs) and Little tantrum (8 months) to the Western Australian Museum, I wasn’t overly enthused. We had been to a number of museums of late, seen a few dinosaur bones etc, so I wasn’t expecting anything too different. However, the two tantrums and I came out of this dinosaur themed Museum very satisfied.
Big tantrum LOVES fire engines. He is always coming ‘to the rescue’. We constantly have to walk past our local fire station and see if the fire engine is there or if it ‘busy rescuing people’. I don’t blame his enthusiasm and love for the big red trucks. Fire engines have flashing lights, noisy sirens, big ladders and lots of high pressured hoses. The fire fighters get to wear impressive uniforms, climb down large poles and star in popular cartoons on ABC. more “Perth: Department of Fire & Emergency Services Education & Heritage Centre doesn’t encourage too much fun for children”
Have you ever walked into a pub, only to be greeted with captured stuffed bears? If you stop at the Drovers Inn, that is exactly what you will experience.This place is Taxidermy heaven! I am not a hunter at all, but seeing these bears and other hunted animals makes you appreciate how much skill is in involved in first catching the animal, then preserving it to its former glory. more “Blink and you’ll miss the Drovers Inn”
If Fireman Sam, Lightning McQueen or Thomas the Tank engine are equally as big in your household as they are in ours, then the Riverside Museum is the perfect place to visit with your toddler. The Riverside Museum is 1 of 10 FREE museums in Glasgow, but don’t think that because it is free it’s not any good, on the contrary, it is fantastic! more “Glasgow Riverside Museum is toddler heaven”
When in Glasgow a must see with the children is the Glasgow Science Museum. We loved it so much we went twice!
Big tantrum had an absolute blast, and enjoyed almost all the activities, even the ones aimed at the older children. As a big kid at heart I also found myself having a great time, as this museum is very hands on and rather interactive. There are three interesting levels to explore providing children of all ages plenty of entertainment and curiosity. more “Glasgow Science Museum fun for everyone”
Big tantrum LOVES trains. He carries Thomas (the Tank Engine) everywhere, sings the Chuggington song to himself and randomly calls out ‘All aboard’. So, when we found out that Fort William had a beautiful steam train that runs daily (in summer) to Mallaig we thought we better go and see it. more “The Jacobite train worth seeing at Fort William even without a ticket”
