Bowers Museum - Terra-Cotta Warriors

What if you had a chance to visit an artifact made in 221BC and traveled all the way from China? Would you make the extra effort to drive a few miles to see it? Why not? What if it was free, your kids could attend and the event was on a Sunday afternoon? A few Sunday's ago, we attended the "Free Museum Day" at the Bowers Museum presented by Target. Bowers' is hosting the famous "Terra-Cotta Warriors", which were discovered in China in 1974.

On a very busy week we drove to Los Angeles to go play and attend a very fun event, "Cupcakes for Bloggers". I was completely amazed when I arrived at the Zimmer Children's Museum. There was a plane! Yes, a plane inside the museum. The kids jumped into the plane right away without losing a beat. It seemed like magic, because they were so fast! They sat in the plane pretending to be pilots.

The museum was filled wall to wall with wonder and compassion.  My kids played and played until they were tired. At one point they stopped and turned around to say "Thank you for bring us here".  To hear them say thank you made
