Tim’s Travel Tips: Ann Arbor Hands On Museum

by Tim Joseph

This week’s weekend get away is to the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum. I visited this museum in 2nd grade. We took the Am Track from Wayne and arrived in Ann Arbor. The thing I remember the most was the giant bubbles. Huge tubs filled with soapy water and sticks with ropes on them. I must have really been enjoying it because my teacher pulled me aside and said “Don’t tell anyone, but we’re going to do this in class in a couple weeks”. It was our secret. The museum has hundreds of exhibits. A lot more than when I was there.

I haven’t been there since then but my 10 year old has. I probably wont wait too long before going back.

Hours are Monday-Saturday 10am to 5pm and Sunday from noon-5pm. Admission is $8 for ages 2 and up, free for kids under 2 and free with a museum membership.

Imagine this, you’re driving down I-75 with your family and suddenly you can’t remember how to get where you’re going. You open up the laptop, look up directions, check your email, and while you’re at it you order a new DVD from amazon. Next, this kids start screaming because the music you’re listening to is getting stale and they want some variety. You go in and download more and they’re happy. Sound like a stretch? Not anymore.

Chrysler unveiled its UConnect Web that turns your vehicle into a rolling hot spot. The service will have an MSRP of $449 w/ dealer installation expected to be $35-$50. You’ll need a subscription which will $29 per month. It’ll be available in August as a dealer add on MOPAR accessory.
