London is said to be one of the most exciting cities in the world. This article gives you some amazing reasons to book a weekend there, so you can look forward to a nice break away from home.
There is also a temporary life size animatronic dinosaurs at Cranbrook, Hatching the Past, which will run through September 6th. It deals with dinosaur eggs and nests from around the world. There are reconstructed nests, “exploration centers”, and videos. Children also have an opportunity to touch real dinosaur bones, and to dig for eggs. (The eggs are almost certainly fakes, but there are also real dino eggs on display.) The total exhibit covers 5,000 square feet.
The only drawback to this exhibit is that it only plays at certain times. But if you are fortunate enough to catch it at the right time, you too can become a forensic scientist for 15 minutes. This is a special exhibit at the Science Museum of Minnesota and is only available until January 4, 2009.
This theater is like IMAX on crack. This rare, giant screen is dome shaped and as you walk in to find your seat, you can view the screen moving into position. An interesting side note: the Science Museum of Minnesota building was built around this huge screen.

And this, as they say, is only the tip of the iceberg. Make sure you do not miss the white tigers, Rex and Zulu, or the sea lion show. The Audubon Zoo in New Orleans has so many fun and educational things to do that you will want to keep coming back for more. Daily tickets are currently $13.50 for adults, $8.50 for children 2-12 and $10.50 for seniors. But since you’ll want to come back again and again, go ahead and buy the membership or annual pass. At $90 for an individual and $135 for a family, you will certainly get your money’s worth since it includes admission not only to the Audubon Zoo, but the New Orleans Audubon Aquarium as well for a full year. There are many other discounts and perks associated with the membership that make it an even better deal.
