Being as it was (another) nice day on Sunday, Tony took the kids off for a few hours to the Ecotarium in Worcester (http://www.ecotarium.org/). The Ecotarium is a strange sort of cross between Science Museum and zoo and advertises itself as an organization dedicated to the study of science and nature. It has a small number of animals in the zoo part, but not just mice and birds as you'd expect; one of the main attractions is a polar bear no less! Outside is a narrow gauge train that gives rides around the property, and a tree canopy walkway 40ft up in the trees. Inside the building are hands-on exhibits such as you'd expect to see in a typical kids science museum.
