Indiana State Museum

I got to spend Valentine's Day with my 3 Valentines. It started with me wanting to go to Indy to redeem some birthday gift cards and coupons. Then we decided to turn it into a family day in Indy.

Brennan loves this restaurant - Kabuto. It's a Japanese steak house where they cook at your table. See the onion volcano? A big hit with the kids.


Then we went to the Indiana State Museum and IMAX theater. We had never been there but had heard good things. There are a lot of science exhibits, which of course go over very well with my boys.


There was an area with famous people from Indiana. Here are the boys posing by Jim Davis, creator of their favorite comic strip - Garfield.


There is a 3 story pendulum that knocks over these pegs as the day progresses.




Thomas with a painting of William Henry Harrison - 1st Governor of Indiana and 9th President of the United States. Thomas likes reading and learning about Presidents.


We finished the afternoon with an IMAX 3D movie called Under the Sea. It was a lot of fun. David and Brennan saw an IMAX movie at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio, but Thomas had not seen one before. The 3D aspect made it even cooler. It was beautiful to see all the underwater creatures up close (except for the sea snakes). The movie was narrated by Jim Carey. We'd definitely go again!
