We spent the bulk of our adventure in the Kidspace section and at the dinosaur exhibition. Both of these areas are so beautifully designed for the tiny tots. Plenty of hands on action and sensory experiences on offer. Angus made the most of the painting table... as did many other budding artists. Kids and Paint: The Untold Love Story. I must say, the dinosaur replicas were A.mazing! So incredibly life like, in size and detail. Angus and I were both very brave when the lights went down and a simulated storm scene was produced. This was the only point where he became a teeny bit cautious of his surrounds. But he was only too happy to pose next to the giant head of a Tyrannosaurus Rex (very Godfather-esque) and go fossicking for bones, in one of the purpose built displays.
We wrapped it all up in under 2 hours, which I felt was plenty of time for my little big man. I'm certain he is still a bit young at this age, to appreciate the full effect of the museum. In a couple of years, I expect he will insist we make a day of it, as there are just so many brilliant things to see and do. No doubt his baby brother won't sleep the entire time in the pram on our next visit either. I am extremely glad we went though and shared some precious Mama/Angus time.
