Shanghai Science and Technology Museum

We took Timmy to the Science and Technology Museum today. I think we are spoiled for museums in other cities because we come from Chicago where all the museums are world-class. This one I think would have been a little better suited to maybe a 4 or 5 year old. The architecture of parts of it reminded me of the waterfront in Milwaukee near the art museum there.

Timmy did love watching a temporary exhibit they had where you could purchase your own little race car and watch it race around on a track. The second best attraction was not even an attraction at all, it was some kind of mystery yellow lifting machine thingy that Scott doesn't even know the proper name for. It was stashed in the corner under an escalator and Timmy thought it was the coolest.

Checking out the mystery machine and learning about pilot valves like a good little engineering student.

Watching the cars on the track.

There were fish in there under the floor.
