Earth Day (April 22) is fast approaching! To celebrate, the Museum of Science and Industry offers free general admission all day. If you haven’t gotten a chance to explore this museum while living in Hyde Park, this would be a fantastic opportunity to do so. I recommend that you get there early (museum opens at 9:30 AM) so as to beat the stroller crowd. The various exhibits include “Earth Revealed,” an animated globe that demonstrates many of the natural phenomena that affect our little planet, and “Smart Home: Green + Wired,” a look at green architecture and lifestyle. Also, the gift shop is fun. I really like astronaut ice cream.
