Please Click on the Images if You Wanna See Larger Versions

They did a total remodel at the Children's Museum in Portsmouth.

 

It was closed for over a year while they made it bigger and better.

Sasha and Anya liked driving the bus.

This Tug boat was new

 

And you could fish from the bow!

 

After you catch a fish you could identify it on a board up on deck.

The Bubble room was pretty much the same

But just as fun as always

Look at that long Bubble!

A big Bubble full of sisters!

 

Sasha did great at the geographical dioramas.  Pick the country based on their stuff.

 

Here they are remote loading and unloading cargo ships

The train section seemed bigger than before too!

Sasha was scared to pop her head into this bubble surrounded by the tracks when she was little.

 

Anya likes playing with the toy trains

In this room they shrink the kids down so everything looks big!
