Well look at this: I found one last batch of Mass photos hanging out in my camera!
En route home to NYC we stopped at this amazing place that our friends recommended. The Ecotarium is located in Worcester Mass and is an indoor AND outdoor museum and learning center for kids. What could be better than THAT in the middle of a four hour car ride? There were nature trails, a train to ride on through the woods, river otters that frolicked in a tank after coming up from the river, and a dinosaur in the forest! Indoors we found a ‘hurricane machine’, all sorts of water/wind exploring games, some live animals mixed with some taxidermy and a giant chess board amidst tables of other board games and puzzles. It was a great diversion for restless kids in the car (and a reprieve from traffic). We were good and sated for the rest of the ride home.
