Frisco Heritage Museum

Last month, the kids completed their reading logs for the Frisco library summer reading program. They each received a prize pack with a bunch of free food and event coupons. One of those coupons was good for a free child and a free adult admission to the Frisco Heritage Museum. We had never been before, so today was the day.

I admit I was a little apprehensive about taking the kids here because some museums are hard for my kids. If it's not hands-on, it's not fun for them. But since this was free, and my husband was along to help, I decided to try it out.

Inside the museum
The museum was a nice mixture of hands-off displays and hands-on, interactive displays.

It was almost like walking through a time machine. The kids got a kick out of this '70s living room.

And this rotary phone! Both of the boys practiced their dialing skills.

Upstairs was an original Atari and Nintendo! Brian showed the boys how to play a few games.

Alyssa's favorite part was this interactive kids' play area.

There was a small movie theater with old movies playing. There was also a great deal of information about the history of Frisco, which I found very interesting.
Outside the museum are several historic buildings, including a church, school and blacksmith shop. However, they are only open on the third Sunday of every month.

After we were done taking pictures outside, we had to stop for a Slurpee break.

This was a great way to spend 1-2 hours indoors! If you got the free coupon this summer, go check it out!
