Children's museums craft exhibits by tapping into the imaginations of youngsters, which explains the inordinate number of displays about lion monster-truck drivers and mutant-turtle rock stars. Nourish creative minds with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a family pass for two children and two accompanying adults to The Selma Children's Museum (an $11 value).
The Selma Children’s Museum encourages children to explore their vast imagination while fostering an educational spirit with fun, hands-on activites. Parents can participate or watch as children peruse the 10 exhibits while learning about time zones, dinosaurs, cooking, and more. Blossoming chefs can craft pretend pizzas while following instructions and using imitation ingredients, while mindsplorers can hop into an inflatable raft to discover facts about the Alabama River, which flows from Mobile Bay all the way up to Alabama’s North Pole fortress. Tykes can tout their artistic sides with the Nature Impression exhibits, where they can use crayons and paper to make colorful rubbings of a favorite fossil.
