Palmyra Trip: Day Four: Rochester!

After one last trip to the pool, we said goodbye to my sister and her family and headed off to Rochester's National Museum of Play! The museum had everything! A carousel, a miniature grocery store for them to shop and ring up their own groceries, a Sesame Street room . . .everything! Each section had a craft corner for the kids to make something and a stage for kids to play dress up and put on a play. They also had book recommendations for each themed room. Fabulous.
All four Cunningham gals riding the train. Choo! Choo!
This was one of my favorite toys when I was little. I used to ride on top of it in the basement. Loved, loved it.

Here's Macey putting on her own play in the Storybook section. It took her forever to get dressed. She wanted to get it just right.

On the second floor of the Museum in a Toy Hall of Fame. Here's an originial cootie game from the 60's. On the main floor they also had an arcade with all of the old favorites: PacMan, Ms. PanMan, Space Invaders, Frogger. Garry spent a lot of time in that room.

Here's Emma at the Hall of Fame. She's actually really good.

Before we left we took one last ride on the carousel. Molly was happy to be included in the ride.

Hmm. . .my parents just left the other day for a tour of Palmyra to include the Hill Camorah pageant. And isn't it amazing how excited you can get about children's museums when you have children! We just got back from Utah where my kids spent the majority of their time in the "I am a child of God" exhibit of the Church history museum. Great place!! Sounds like we would enjoy your museum equally well. So if we ever get to venture up to NY - wanna show us around?
