Landesmuseum für Technik und Arbeit
Today we took a field trip to the Landesmuseum für Technik und Arbeit in Mannheim (yeah that's German for a science museum in Manheim) The museum had some great hands-on exhibits and displays. The staff tried really hard to speak and explain things in English to the kids, but all of the written information was in German, so we missed out on some of the things that we couldn't translate. They had this box lit to take shadow portraits. It was a really small display so Sarah had to smash her teen self in there, so you can see the yellow of her shirt, but otherwise I thought it was a pretty cool photo opportunity.The kids playing with some of the hands-on exhibits.Our final stop was on the short train ride they had in the motion section.
