Powerhouse - Lego & Narnia

L and R and their friend meet a Lego robot

Yesterday we took a trip into Sydney to visit the Powerhouse Museum. Our main aim was to see the Sydney Brick Show - a display of Lego models including those made by our very own friend and fellow home-educator "Lego Pete". The queue to get in was ENORMOUS and we were cursing coming on a weekend which we wouldn't normally do but the show was only on for 2 days.

The kids friend K entered the competition and won with this model penguin

We also went in to visit the Narnia exhibition; R is reading the books at the moment. Of course we weren't allowed to take photos of the props and costumes from the films but it was pretty good.

We also had a go on some of the experiments in the museum before retreating away from the crowds to the peace of the members lounge.
