It’s the middle of February. In the dead of winter. In New York City. Finding an activity for my kids that we haven’t done, to paraphrase my son, “One-hundred times already,” has become a desperate scenario. When you live in a two-bedroom apartment with twin 5-year-old boys, it’s all about survival. Thankfully, I’ve got my plan for the weekend. The Brooklyn Children’s Museum has just opened a new exhibition, which as a travel editor, I’m especially excited about. From Here to There explores the science of travel by land, sea, and air, with 12 interactive galleries. Your kids can launch a boat across a windy lake, learn how combustion engines power trains, and even heat up a hot air balloon. I’ll dream of it taking us all to Mexico.
