We didn’t expect the museum to also have live animals, so that was a fun surprise!

The museum has free admittance, but you have to pay a small fee to see the shuttle. However, if you bought a ticket for the IMAX cinema it was included! We saw an amazing 3D (real) IMAX movie about the Hubble telescope, with footage shot by the austronauts themselves!

After this we walked to the Natural History Museum, which was great as well! They had free admittance on Tuesdays, so we were lucky.

Lots of bones in there.

After that we went to Souplantation -again- to meet up with Michael and Tara. We chatted about cartoons and they showed us their awesome work!
