Located in downtown Grand Rapids, the Children's Museum is a perfect destination for those cold winter days. My mom and I took my niece and nephew there the morning after Christmas Day; going relatively early was a wise decision, as the museum quickly became quite crowded with many children and even more adults.
The museum has a variety of different play areas, some meant for very young children, others suitable for slightly older kids.
|The yellow VW bug is popular with all ages!|
The area that attracts the most children is "Little GR" -- a small city, just like Grand Rapids, with all of the requisite services one needs in town.
|The post office|
|Properly checking out library books is serious work!|
|The chef at the pizzeria|
|This supermarket shopper apparently loves fish!|
|Small selection of supermarket items|
|The friendly supermarket cashier|
The museum has numerous other areas, but this is where our kids wanted to spend the most time. It's also where we ran into other Latvian-Americans -- because it's a small world when you're Latvian!
