Did you know visiting a museum with your child is as all American as apple pie and baseball? It is- just about every state has a museum of their own. As cultural and informative as museum are they can be a bit overwhelming for younger kids. Most of us visit museums on our own and without the benefit of a guide. How about the next time you visit a museum you take along the History Hero iTunes App.

Detroit Mom’s thoughts on History Hero iTunes App:
Earlier this year I took my boys’ to the Detroit Institute of Arts located in downtown Detroit. We attended an event for the Detroit Public Schools. Part of the event was a scavenger hunt. My teenage sons and I really enjoyed searching all over the museum for clues and answers. History Hero is an interactive app much like the scavenger hunt we participated in. It really enhances the museum experience and allows for a much more enjoyable learning experience. The best way to really enjoy this app is to try it out for yourself.
