Deutsches Museum, Again

So this Museum really is big.  We went three times and didn't make it through the whole thing.  This time we didn't really see a whole lot between a sad little boy and too many bathroom trips.   We saw the glass, ceramics and toy section.  It was fun though.  They has a show for all sorts of glass objects, blown and created in the museum.  They were really cool.

The ceramic section was interesting because when I think of ceramics I think of tiles or dishes.  These items have industrial applications such as pipes and insulators for electrical applications.  It was really interesting.

Brick display

The kids enjoyed the toy display.  They didn't get to play with anything but it was fun to see the different mediums for building toys.  There were really old school Legos they especially loved.  There were metal and wooden toys exhibited.  Many of them had motors and moved when the kids pushed a button.

We ended our day in the play area.  The kids had it to themselves so they were able to accomplish every kids dream and build a house out of the giant Lego blocks.  They had a blast.

We're sad we don't have time to go back.  It was a great place to learn and play!

This was on our walk home.  The low sun makes for some dramatic lighting.
