Moments of brilliance
I thought going to the new Science and Technology museum would be a hit with my son, but I was very mistaken. Perhaps I shouldn't have been so surprised. It's still a
after all. Rooms and rooms of inanimate objects with placards detailing something or other that few people stop to read. It certainly wasn't going to engage my borderline toddler son. However, that all changed when we found what I feared may not have survived the rebuild of this museum: the tilted kitchen! The tilted kitchen was a fascinating exhibit that's been around since I was a child and it amazed me to no end. It's just a normal kitchen, but built at a 15 degree angle. It really messes with your sense of balance. So we got stuck there for about 2 hours. It didn't help that there's a live camera feed you can watch outside of the occupants inside as they struggle to cross the room. My son found that infinitely fascinating to watch, more than going in himself. Good work, Science Museum, you kept the good bits.
