This summer we are continuing to check off the many places near Grand Island that I want the kids and I to visit. Last week we were supposed to start our big water park tour, however it ended up being a cold, breezy day, so we visited the Hastings Museum.
I have heard nothing but good things about this museum. The girls have been asking to go as soon as they heard there is a kool-aid exhibit. Apparently they thought there would be free samples of kool-aid or something. Such a treat that would be since I never buy kool-aid...so they were very, very hopeful. But there dreams were dashed...no samples were avalable.
My parents were camping in the area, so my mom joined us.
Included in the price of admission to the museum there was a planeterium that showed a 35 minute video. Kind of cool as it was projected on the dome ceiling. The topic was about the solar system and was in a cartoon format. The kids and I thought this was perfect timing since we are currently studying the planets in summer school! There are also Imax movies for a bit extra.
There is too much to mention from our visit...so here is a picture summary!
(Travel tip: for those planning a vacation to Grand Island and the Hastings Area...you can buy a membership to the Stuhr Museum and it is a dual membership to the Hastings Museum! We have already gotten our monies worth!)
After our visit we enjoyed some Hawaiian shaved ice...oh so yummy!
