Flashback Feature #11 - Wonderscope

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Three and a half years ago when we came to Kansas to look for a house, I took the kids to Wonderscope. Just last week, we visited Wonderscope again, so I thought for this week’s Flashback Feature I’d do a little Then and Now comparison! Wonderscope is a children’s museum which is inside an old school building. Each room has a different theme.

First up – the water room. Then:

The train table in the hallway is still a hit. Then:

Now (this room has a few new things in it now as well):


There is also a doctor / vet area which the kids really like. We didn’t play in it that first time, so these are just pictures from now!

Gabbie is getting to be too old for Wonderscope now and found herself bored a few times while we were there. Simon on the other hand is starting to get more into the pretend play, as you can see him putting a baby to bed above!   

Honestly I don’t even like taking the kids to places like this. It gets boring for me, plus usually one wants to do one thing while the other wants to do something else and it turns into a battle. Wonderscope also charges for adult admission, which I wish they wouldn’t! Do you have a place like this in your area and if so, what do you think?
