"I just wanted to thank the museum for putting on the babies' day on the last Wednesday of each month. It is the second time that I have gone and I have enjoyed myself considerably. It is a really nice activity to do with my baby and the boxes of hands on activities are very interesting and fun for her. There are not a lot of opportunities in the city to do things like this and to really have something that is interactive for the babies. Also, it has encouraged me to take my daughter to the museum which I hope to become a tradition for a long time to come. Thank you so much for offering this day for us moms and babies.Everyone was so nice and wonderful and I look forward to coming again!" Amanda.
