A free day with cars, trucks and things that go (Feb. 29)

February 26, 2008

The Museum of Transportation has “boy” written all over it — a collection of everything that goes in an environment where kids can romp.  Cars, planes, buses, trains … what could be better?  And on Friday, Feb. 29, it’s having a Leap Day special with free admission.  (Usually it’s $6 for adults and $5 for kids 5 to 12; kids under 4 are free all the time.)  You’ll still have to pay for the Creation Station ($1.50 per kid per hour; three admission times are scheduled in the morning) if you want to participate in those hands-on activities for preschoolers.

That’s not to say girls won’t appreciate the museum too.  But my experience lies with my boys’ and my friends’ boys, who really love the place.  It’s on Barrett Station Road in St. Louis County, and the county parks and recreation department opens it from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.   If you have questions about the Leap Day special, or any of its other events, call 314.965.6885.
