We went to the Rosicrucian Museum today. The kids were pretty impressed. Well, except for Rico and one part.
They had an actual replica of a tomb. You had to walk into this dark cave to get to it. Rico was fine at first...Marielle held back. Rico said, "It's not bad, come on Marielle" and forged ahead.
Then he turned the corner to a much darker area and started crying. What we didn't realize was that there was a tour ahead of us with a docent giving a speech about the walls of the tomb. So here's Rico crying and a number of old biddies (sorry, but they were) shushing him. I gave him a hug, pulled him to a lighter area and he was fine.
But now, I just have to kid him about going back to the museum and spending the night to get him to behave!
It really was very interesting to the kids. This is the first "real" museum they'd been to.
