A Boston Terrier Top for the Tech Museum

The drought is California is long gone, thanks to the incredible amount of rain we've had this year. That's a fantastic thing, but it means finding more and more rainy day activities to do with my little one.

The drought is California is long gone, thanks to the incredible amount of rain we’ve had this year. That’s a fantastic thing, but it means finding more and more rainy day activities to do with my little one. This time we explored the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose. Knowing that we’d be spending the day exploring hands on activities and walking around quite a bit, I dressed accordingly. Scroll on to see pictures of my outfit, get some info. on the Tech Museum, and see some pictures from our visit!

Appropriately located in Silicon Valley, The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose is an interactive science and technology museum that is appropriate for all ages. That being said, children, teens, and adults who can understand what each exhibit is about will get a lot more out of it than toddlers. My little one is a 1 year and 1/2 and she had a blast, but it would have been awesome if she could actually understand what was going on! The museum has 8 galleries, each with a different focus, and an IMAX theater. The museum also offers several programs from Birthday Parties to a badge program for Girl Scouts. The Tech museum is open daily, except for Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day, from 10:00am to 5:00pm. Ticket pricing is as follows, but through the end of 2017 Bank of America members get 1 free admission ticket (galleries only) during the first full weekend of the month. This is part of Museums on Us and all you need is your ATM card and ID for the free ticket.

General Admission Adult Student/Senior 65+ Child (3-17)
Museum galleries $24 $19 $19
Educational IMAX film $10 $8 $8
Combo (galleries plus educational IMAX) $29 $23 $23

To wrap up this post, here are some photos from our visit!

Social Circles: this exhibit encourages social encounters through play. If you stand close to someone else, your circles will combine to make a larger circle that you’re both standing in.

What’s your ideal way to spend a rainy day? Mine is snuggling up on the couch and watching movies, BUT I have a kid, so that’s not currently an option. 🙂
