Today we went to the Western Australia Maritime Museum. We went along especially to see the Da Vinci Machines exhibition. In the photo above you can see the children built a bridge using Da Vinci's design. There's no glues, bolts or nails here. The wooden pieces are just woven together.
There were lots of machines to try out in the hands-on gallery.

Around the rest of the museum the mega-mouth shark in alcohol was our favourite exhibit.
Of course there were plenty of boats and other hands-on exhibits.
