If you ever have the opportunity to travel to Salem, I recommend taking some time to explore A.C. Gilbert's Discovery Village. They have a remarkable 20,000 square foot outdoor space that includes the world's largest erector set tower, musical instruments and a massive paddle wheel boat (not to mention a really tall slide that is kind of scary at night!) In the three historic houses that make up the rest of the Museum, children can create their own toy or invention with household goods, learn body basics in the body exhibit or make bubbles in the Bubble Room. Check out A.C. Gilbert's Discovery Village!
It was a great couple of days in Salem, and I am already looking forward to next year's conference in Everett at Imagine Children's Museum.
