If you are feeling a bit hemmed in from all the cold weather, bundle up and take a trip to the Vancouver Aquarium, Science World or your local museum.
There is nothing more exciting than witnessing the awe on a child's face as they begin to explore the natural world.
If you've got a thing for fossils, remember to check out the ancient critters as well. The Royal BC Museum, Qualicum Beach Museum an Courtenay Museum all have permanent fossil displays. If you are in Vancouver, head on down to Science World to see their T-Rex. There re also many fossil exhibits planned at the new Beatty Biodiversity Museum openig later this year at UBC.
