Arizona is a great place to find things to do with kids indoors in the summer and one of my fave places that my kids have a blast at is the Arizona Museum of Natural History!!! We recently went to check out what they had to offer and lets just say your in for a ROARing good time! Dinosaurs and Panning for Gold were the activities my kids were excited about when we went. Not only did the kids have fun but so did the Parents and Grandparents ;)
There is more than just Dino's and diggin for gold they have lot's of Arizona's history and fossils you can see or touch up close. It is a great place to learn and have fun what more can you ask for when looking for a Great Kids Activity?!? I will share a few pictures of mine just to give you a peek but go check it out for yourself I promise you will be glad you did!
Here is info from their site:
The Arizona Museum of Natural History is your place for dinosaurs that roar and much more. The valley’s only natural history museum has the best dinosaurs in town, a history courtyard where visitors pan for gold, a native peoples’ gallery includes a replica village and pottery. Where else can you enjoy a cool indoor waterfall? Three changing exhibition galleries offer a variety of interesting subjects.
