Looking for something both fun & educational? Visit a local museum or historic site!
Learning the history of a place can be fun! Kids typically don’t realize the influences that make our world the place that it is today and visiting a museum is the perfect way to teach them. At the Independent Telecommunications Pioneer Association (ITPA) museum, they can see the way phones have transformed into these tiny, all-knowing things that we hold in our hands today. It’s pretty amazing! If you’re looking for a way to learn more about local history, visit the Midway Museum! It’s a perfect opportunity to gain knowledge about the foundation of Liberty County dating back all the way to the Revolutionary War.
