Science, technology, imagination,
history all make up this incredible world for kids. The "Discovery Hall"
is one section of the Activity Center. It features activities in which
children can discover different elements from the environment, such as
precious stones, fossils and shells. Next comes the "Handicrafts
and Arts Hall. It displays the ancient artesanies and various crafts, such
as drawing on wood or leather with paint and water colors, weaving on carpet
looms, or painting on glass and cardboard. The "Know yourself" division
allows children to investigate skeletons and the internal human body parts.
The Museum Park
The park surrounding
the Child Museum flows with an abundance of trees and plant species. Information
on every species is posted for children to read and compare as they tour
the park. A Bird watching tour is also available. Here children can observe
birds in their natural environment through the use of binoculars. Magnifying
glasses are also used in a tour for children to observe the behavior of
ants, bees and other insects.
The Bent Pyramid
What makes this pyramid
unique is that it rises more steeply (54.3Â°) than the Red
Pyramid or Giza pyramids.
The explanation for its shape is unknown. Another puzzling fact is the
two entrances, one on its west side as well as the more conventional one
in its north face. Again, the reason is unknown â€“ perhaps another mystery
