Strong Museum of Play

Strong Museum of Play! Have you ever heard of this place?? As a parent, if you haven’t, you really need to write this down or bookmark it! We recently took a trip here on a rainy day for some fun. They offer a HUGE indoor area for children to learn, explore and PLAY! They have their very own Sesame Street reproduction, Wegmens store (children’s size), Dr. Seuss, Bernstein Bears reproduction play area, Comic book character recreations and Dancing with Wings exhibit. I could go on and on about this place. It is wonderful and fairly inexpensive. It is in Rochester, NY but worth the trip! Today I am going to focus on the Dancing with Wings exhibit.  

This is not included in the general admission BUT I think it’s $4-5 extra. Use your triple A cards, Senior or student cards for discounted prices!! This attraction houses 800 free flying butterflies!! Do you see why I think you should shell out the extra dough and take your children! Before entering you will gain some safety tips, instructions and guide cards. 

Then you enter the rainforest setting hoping a butterfly will land on you! At first mac was shy and wondered around to scoop the place out. He was super excited! 

Then a yellow butterfly landed on his hands. Boy was he HAPPY!

Yellow just happens to be his FAVORITE color.


How precious is this?

I am telling you for the extra $5 it’s worth it, BIG time!

So while there I shot a few photos of the different breeds to show all of you!

Hope you enjoy them. 

I am shooting this on my Panosonic Lumix.

What do you think?

I even had one land on my hand whilst walking around shooting photos! 

If you have children and have never been I HIGHLY suggest you make a trip. This is wonderful for children under the age of 6!! Children under the age of 2 are FREE. I give this place a 5 out of 5 stars in recommendations! We have taken Mac several times and each time there is something new and different to try. No I do not get paid to say any of this I am merely expressing my opinion of cheap, fun, kid activities to check out.
