If your kids are into trucks they will LOVE Wheels at Work

[ 0 ] June 29, 2009 |

Kids get behind the wheel when fascinating vehicles roll up to the Museum during this special summer series.  Climb aboard a fire truck, sit atop a giant digger, examine the equipment in an ambulance and meet the drivers who operate them.  Explore a different vehicle each week!
