You were allowed to take pics at Spiders, though I must say museum lighting and the crowd makes it a challenge.
The best part of any trip is watching kids react to what they see. Spiders has the added bonus of a very knowledgeable, and attractive expert who not tells but shows us all manner of those eight-legged wonders.
The creepy crawlies are all kept at a safe distance, while a camera flashes the action on to a screen.
Here’s a few more mobile shots. Hope they are clear enough.
What looks like two spiders is actually one that recently molted.
Not real thank goodness. Kids had a great time climbing all over this super-sized model.
Photography is not allowed at the IMAX, and rightfully so. Believe me when I tell you there’s a no nonsense security guard who scans the theater with her flash light looking for recording devices. She is also the one who reminds you the line forms to her right to enter the show. Parents and kids alike complied pronto.
This National Geographic film narrated by the always amazing Sir David Attenborough is easy for audience members of all ages to follow.
The recreations of Flying Monsters aka Flying Dinosaurs aka professors are as good as it gets. As they swoop and glide across the sky you just might find yourself or swaying or maybe even ducking.
Til next we meet.
It’s ice tea time.
