We took a trip to the General Patton Museum a few weeks ago and it was good:-). The kids LOVED the tanks... yes, they were even able to touch them.
They loved the guy that turned up now an then to tell them various tales of the history of certain tanks (they also loved watching him be QUITE STERN with a couple of older boys that were being a bit too rowdy... AND THEN they loved watching him kick those boys right out the front door!) That is what they talked about for the rest of the day, I kid you not!!! The lesson was well learned by them- DO NOT mess with a retired officer, the man is serious and will not hesitate to carry out his threats! You can see him in a photo explaining Army things to the P... he really did just pop up everywhere. They were VERY well behaved for the ENTIRE tour!! I wanted to take him home with us, but I was sure he would be missed by his family:-(.
My favorite things were the car General Patton rode in,
the cool da Vinci model of a tank,
the recruiting posters,
and they had a piece of the Berlin wall!
My absolute favorite thing there , though, was the Sicilian donkey cart. Random? Maybe. But it was amazing, beautiful, and I wanted to wrap it up and take it home with me:-). It made me want to have a donkey just so I could have a cart like this... seriously.
