Our dad's favorite part was the huge "clock" thing on the floor that has a pointer that swings from the celing knocking down a block every minute until it knocks them all down everyday.
We watched a movie about fuel and how we get it and what each kind does to and for our enviroment. Then we rode in an evelator thing down to where they were drilling for oil. It shook and rattled and then when they got the oil to flow it shot us back to the top. That was pretty cool. You could see the oil and rock layers through the windows.
We saw shiny gems like gold and stuff and we saw stuffed animals - not the kind you have on your bed - but like these used to be alive. Some were set up to look like they were chasing the other animals and that looked cool.
We chased down some McDonalds inside the Musuem for lunch too.
We even went down stairs and got to pretent to do the weather for the people that live in Houston. The monitor told us what to say about the weather and the map of the area on the monitor showed that bad weather was coming.
