On Thursday, Dane and I visited the CR Smith American Airlines Museum. Loving all things Lego, when we heard there was a traveling Lego exhibit there, we worked it into our mini-vacation. Good thing! What a great museum!
First thing in the door, there is a theater sporting airline seats and a digital high definition 42' X 36' screen. The movie showing is a 15 minute film called "Spirit of America." Perfect length and informational narrative for kids and short attention span moms- me!! There are some beautiful flying scenes over the Grand Canyon and snow covered mountains.
Earning room all to itself is The Flagship Knoxville- an American Airlines Douglas DC,
open for inside and outside viewing!
If you look closely, you can see my reflection..... on purpose, I might add!
Here are a few exhibit pics.
Dane is not as tall or wide as a jet engine. That is a good thing!
I admitted we were there for the Lego Exhibit so here goes.....
Some hands on- Dane's favorite!
This exhibit shows many different transportation modes.
Here is a detailed exhibit on ways to travel in the early 1900's...
all made out of Legos!
Lego racing "around the world!"
Dane loved that!
One last shot from a great kid-friendly museum.
