Great science museum to bring the kids
The McWane Science Center is a large science museum in downtown Birmingham, Alabama that's a great choice to bring the kids for a day. You know, a little fun and education at the same time never hurts! Thee other nice thing is that there's a bit of everything, from dinosaurs to IMAX to interactive games, so you're sure not to get bored.
I especially liked the World of Water, a large exhibit based around fish, amphibians, and other critters. The kids' favorite was undoubtedly the sharks and stingrays on the bottom floor. They have a tank where you can walk right up and bet the animals...lots of shrieks and giggles to be had for sure! Another cool exhibit was the Alabama Dinosaurs. I never knew Alabama has such a...prehistoric past. They had a couple of big T-Rex looking ones that were pretty impressive.
