Caroline's friend, Cecilia, had her birthday at the Durham museum of life and science. Wow! What a cool place! They had bugs for the kids to touch, a dinosaur trail, fossil dig site, real black bears, farm animals, and a huge playground with picnic area...and that was just the outside! While we did make it into the butterfly house and bug exhibits, we didn't get a chance to take a look around the main building. We will certainly be going back to tour the inside of the facility and revisit the outdoors again.
