Tellus Museum was a blast. And yeah, the kids liked it, too.

It took us an hour to get there, and it’s in the middle of nowhere, but the Tellus Museum in Cartersville, GA was a lot of fun.

The first thing you see is a mammoth dump truck in the parking lot. It’s so huge they had to get it there in three parts.
