Hellow Readers,


Sebetulnya tulisan ini sudah kubuat beberapa bulan lalu (bahkan dari 2016) namun karena satu dan lain hal belum bisa posting. Kali ini aku ingin menulis tentang Museum Anak yang terletak di Providence, Rhode Island. Jarak tempuh sekitar 45 menit dari kota tempat aku tinggal.



Museum, kalau dengar kata itu langsung terbayang bosan dan gak menarik ya? tapi jangan salah museum di States selalu menarik untuk dikunjungi. Begitupula dengan Childrens Museum ini.




Berikut informasi jam buka dan biaya masuknya :







  • Open every day, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.




  • Open selected Friday evenings until 8:00 PM.




  • Closed Thanksgiving Day and December 24 & 25.




  • Admission




  • $12.00 for adults and children; babies under 12 months are free.






Untuk biaya masuk $12 atau sekitar Rp. 162.000 per orang. Tapi jangan khawatir karena di Museum ini anak bisa bebas bereksplorasi. Video lengkap bisa dilihat di atas ya. Saat itu anak-anak sangat gembira, mereka sangat antusias dengan semua yang ada disana.



Di lantai 1 terdapat permainan air, cermin dll. Kalau di websitenya tertulis seperti ini :



Water Ways – Explore ice, mist and discover the swirling, whirling ways of water in an all-new water play environment!

Play Power – Send objects soaring through air tubes and construct magnetic mazes in an environment that celebrates the power of children’s play.

The Climber – Wriggle and stretch through an artful two-story-high climbing maze.

Iway  – Tackle bridge-building challenges and plan a city in an exhibit about solving problems.

ThinkSpace – Experiment with shapes and spaces through hands-on puzzles and challenges.

Littlewoods – Climb into a tree house, swoop down a slide and crawl through a bear cave in an enchanting woodland environment.  Just for infants to 4-year-olds and their caregivers.

Museum ini sangat cocok untuk mengedukasi anak-anak sedari dini tanpa terlihat membosankan. :)



Hmm kapan ya di sini ada museum kece, terawat dan gak berdebu seperti ini? Atau sebetulnya ada cuma aku yang belum eksplor?

We spent our weekend at Farmer's Daughter which located in Kingstown Rhode Island, United States. Only 20 minutes from my house. No fee entrance, We can see goats, horses, corn fields and some plants like broccoli, chilli and so on.



The weather was so perfect, chill but sunny. The color of the leaves was so perfect 🍁🍂.  My kids were enjoyed so much, they ran all over the place and really excited.
