On a recent trip to Connecticut we were looking for something very unique. A museum we had never experienced, and boy did we find it. We had the opportunity to visit the Connecticut Trash Museum in Hartford.
We had a lot of fun!
There is a ton of hands-on activities for the kids to do. They had a "garbage cave" that they kids could do a scavenger hunt in. They had to find all the trash people have thrown away.
They had a hands on sorting activity.
Information on composting
How they remanufacture/recycle materials such as plastic.
If you are in Hartford Connecticut, you must stop at this little jewel. We learned a lot. We are still working hard at recycling, and this helped the kids see how important it is.
Oh my goodness, that is AWESOME! I want to go! What a fantastic way to learn about recycling, what happens to our garbage, etc. I am showing this post to my kids :) Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
