Guest posters are my favorite favorite favorite. Especially in the summer. Especially all the time, actually! My kids aren't going to be interested in all the same things as yours, or be in the same age group as yours (I've been sad to realize how many things we've aged out of already!). Plus, it's always nice to have someone else's opinion. So, without further ado, here's a guest post from PwcMom Jennifer Conway, who's sharing with us about the CMoR Fredericksburg location!
I really love taking my daughter to the Children's Museum of Richmond, but I was happily surprised when I pulled up their website to find that they have a new museum in Fredericksburg, way closer than Richmond or the National Harbor!
So Victoria (my 7 year old princess) and I went to check out the new 2-month old museum and we loved it. It has a small town for kids including a grocery store, a bank, restaurant, a dentist office, a craft area, and a reading area. There is a tire-challenge climb which is fun, and a play area for toddlers.
They even have cool stuff on the walls relating to physics and Sir Isaac Newton. There is informational writing on the walls explaining how the exhibits help the children learn. It appears to have a large open space with potential to add some more exhibits or play areas.
We spent at least 3 hours there. I would highly recommend the Children's Museum of Richmond in Fredericksburg, especially for children under 10. -Jennifer Conway
