Cultural events, of course, develop children’s intellectual abilities, broaden their horizons and provide new knowledge in various fields.
There are practically no museums especially for children, and both children and adults go to the planetarium and cat shows. Therefore, do not forget to remind the child about the rules of conduct in public places.
We don’t feed us with bread and bread – just to go see somewhere, just not to sit at home. In this topic I want to talk about our most memorable trips.
In the center of our city of Kiev there is an inconspicuous from the street, but wonderful inside the House of Nature, in which the exhibition of fish constantly operates. There are several hundreds of fish species, and a chinchilla as a nice bonus. What pleases – aquariums are located low enough from the floor, so I did not have to carry the child in my arms, so that she could look at everything better.
Tickets are cheap – about 40 rubles. We went on a weekday, except for us there were no visitors. The hall is small, which is probably uncomfortable during a large number of visitors.
Most daughter liked the rays, apparently because of the size. I liked the transparent catfish, which are as if made of jelly – you can see all the insides and the skeleton. It is difficult to photograph fish – aquarium glass glows and flashes, and the fish pose very reluctantly.
Just a week later we are going to visit this wonderful event again. Yes, I admit, such events are not meant for children to admire cats, but rather for professionals and those who wish to purchase an exhibition copy.
Advise the child in advance that it is impossible to touch cats, because usually animals at exhibitions that are tired and exhausted by attention and visitors may scratch. In view of the fact that my daughter is passionately dreaming about a live pet, I spend in advance an educational conversation on the topic Cats are not for sale, you can only watch them.
I expected more from visiting this place. Unfortunately, during my childhood, for some reason I did not go there, so I expected this event with no less excitement and curiosity. As it turned out, the arrangement of the auditorium did not change for several decades, which did not prevent the installation of considerable prices for tickets – about 200 rubles.
The number of adults and children was about the same, I noticed even a few couples in love. The presentation lasted for about an hour, by the end of which the daughter almost fell asleep – the twilight, the calming voice of the announcer, and, alas, a very uncomfortable posture for viewing the starry sky affected.
Chairs in the hall are ordinary, like in a movie theater, but you need to sit with your head held high (which, by the way, did not prevent most viewers from eating popcorn). In general, I did not really like it.
This, I think, is the best option for reclaiming a child and relaxing in the fresh air. We often have exhibitions – chrysanthemums, tulips, flower figures and even frozen flowers.
It takes half a day to attend such events, but there are usually places in the museums where you can eat, relax, buy what you need – water, souvenirs, cotton candy 🙂
Usually we go in the company of 1-2 mothers with children. Entrance to such exhibitions is paid for adults – about 100 rubles. For pensioners is free, so grandma often goes with us. The main thing is to take a camera, put on comfortable shoes and get out early.
Museum of Exotic Animals
We were in it twice with an interval of a year. It is located not far from us, in the entertainment center, which makes his visit an excellent option for hanging out in bad weather. Entrance fee – adults 200r, children 100r.
In the exhibition hall are many snakes, monkeys, iguanas, lizards, frogs, spiders. Parrots are in open cages, which allows them to climb out and communicate with visitors. Animals are asked to take pictures without using a flash.
I do not argue, it is easier to stay at home. But believe me, it is much more interesting to attend various cultural events! Who, if not you, will tell the baby about the differences between the male and the female electric stingray and show what frozen orchids look like?
Do you go with children to museums?
