thinkNYlive: Troy’s Children’s Museum of Science

DSC_0807 Lots of art and science museums exist across the U.S.

Someone had the right idea. They created art/science museums for kids across the country. They are sometimes places of great fanfare,  This one in Troy, New York is not.  But to children, this is an intriguing way to spend an afternoon. And they need to be funded whenever possible. When right wing fiscal loons complain about tax dollars, they may also stir programs like this into their mix.

The first time I saw this idea on a big scale was in Canada, although on Staten Island, our museum was doing this close to 50 years ago.
