Field Trip Monday: Children’s Museum of Richmond
Normally, the Children’s Museum of Richmond (C-MoR Central) is closed on Mondays, but on Monday, February 20th they are open! The 1-hour drive from Easter PWC is worth it as your children of all ages will love all the touch and play exhibits and stations. I personally have been a couple times with children of varying ages and they always thoroughly enjoy it! I HIGHLY recommend!
