Whitaker Center

(If you click on the collage, it will enlarge so that you can see the smaller pictures better.)

Pappa came down to visit the girls this week, and we made a trip into Harrisburg to visit the Whitaker Center--which has a science center, a toddler play area, and IMAX theatre. We skipped the movie, spent a bit in the science center, but it was tough to tear the girls away from the play area. There is a toddler area with lots of foam things to climb on, a 2-story building to climb in and 'build' with foam bricks, a grocery store, stage with puppets and dress-up, ambulance, and water table.

The two pictures on the left are of the girls in the midtown market grocery store, top center picture is of the girls in the ambulance, top right is Maggie in the toddler play area, then pushing a cart with a brick, and a shot of the water table. I wasn't able to get many pictures of Katie because she was in the building most of the time. It was so much fun, I would love to get a family membership to go all the time, except the cost to park (5 dollars a visit)...and the joys of travelling into the city....something I have only done on my own about 10 times. Bonus: if you park in the Walnut Street garage, you won't even need to walk is connected to the WC.

We'd like to go back and if anyone wants to come with us, it would be best to go before the end of September. They are now celebrating their 10th anniversary with special pricing...only 10 dollars for the whole science center AND a IMAX movie ticket. If you want to just go to play in the toddler area...only 5 dollars a person! Right now they have an exhibit on Forces of Nature with a spherical projection screen, a tornado that you can touch and stand in, and a booth that will let you experience hurricane force winds.
