This weekend the Museum Center is holding a 1940s event. After going to the Taste of OTR at Washington Park on Saturday for lunch we decided to pop over to the museum since we were so close. And I am so glad we did. There were a lot of free events going on if you don’t already have a museum pass. Above you can see part of the car show that was out front.
Then, right inside the vestibule, we were serenaded by The Sweet and Lows. The kids loved it so much we watched for a bit when we arrived and again when we departed. I got a quick clip below.
Since it was a Saturday, we first headed straight up to Tower A. If you’ve never visited Tower A, it’s worth it (it’s not always open). As you head toward the Omnimax theater, the elevators are on your right. You do have to climb two short flights of steps to get to the final observation area. The kids loved looking out at all of the tracks and seeing the trains coming in. There are often train experts up there to answer all of your questions.
Then we headed down to the Private Dining area for some live big band music.
And a demonstration on how to do a woman’s hair in a 1940s style.
The girls were loving this! Then we went back to the vestibule to be serenaded again before heading home. Overall, it was worth the trip downtown. It is going on again Sunday. Check the Museum Center website for full details and schedule of activities. I recommend the event if you are looking for something to do!
