Take Me There: Egypt in pictures

To wrap up the week I've spent focused on Egypt, based on our time at the Take Me There: Egypt exhibit at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, I wanted to share a few more pictures I loved. If you want more detailed information about our time at this exhibit, please see my post from Monday (which also includes my reasons for writing about Egypt this week). And on Wednesday I cooked up an Egyptian meal that you can read about here.

The concept of this exhibit is that you tour a typical Egyptian village, include a family home. As we explored the Egyptian living room, the arrow discovered that they have a version of Sesame Street. Meaning he could visit and all his favorite friends would come with us. *sigh*

Another favorite feature for the arrow was a light-up display box of fruits and vegetables common in an Egyptian market. Not so very different from our own. In fact, you can't drive a mile around our house without passing a corn field or two.

And one of my favorite features was the sniffable spice and herb display. For a kid whose palette doesn't venture much past yogurt, fruit and crackers, it was fun to see the arrow experience some of these scents.

This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby.

Disclosure: My admission to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis was complimentary. I was under no obligation to write about our time there. The opinions expressed here are my own.


  1. Looks like a fun, hands-on place!

  2. What a great interactive exhibit. Looks like you guys had lots of fun!

  3. He is SO cute! I want to travel to the same place and get our little ones together for a play date!

  4. The sniffable spice display is GENIUS! I can almost smell it through my computer screen.

  5. Yes, love the idea of the sniffable spice display! Museums incorporate the other senses...why not ALL of them?!

  6. I am loving the look of that store. This is what I will look to see and shop in Egypt.
