I am a a hoarder. I collect trinkets and papers and flyers and tickets and magazine cutouts and newspapers and train tickets and photographs. Mark is the kind of person that likes to throw things away and he calls my collection "junk" or "random crap". He dreams of the day I will get rid of it all.
I was going through a stack last week, and I was surprised to find 3 tickets to Museon, the children's museum for Science and Technology in The Hague. The tickets were valid until the end of the summer, so we decided to go this weekend. It was really interesting. The museum has collections in the domains of geology, biology, archaeology, history, science and ethnology.
Currently there are a couple of temporary expositions, one on mimetism, or as it is called: "imitation is an art, and another one focusing on ways to achieve peace. There is also a section that details the history of the Peace Palace in The Hague, another one that goes through several Peace Nobel Prize winners, yet another one about children during the war, as well as the (very vast) main collections on Evolution, Immigration, Geology, Biology, Science, Machines...
Worth noticing is the "baby care" area where not only is there a nice and tall changing table, but also a high-chair, sink, and a box, in case your kid needs a break, a meal, a change or a nap. How was your weekend? Did you go to any interesting places?
