The City of La Habra is well known for its famous Children's Museum. I've written about it several times myself, it's such a fun place. And now, the newest exhibit spotlighting every day heroes is no exception. Pint size visitors have the opportunity to get up close and  try-on costumes of fire fighters and police officers to name a few.  The objective of this exhibit is for the kids to experience first hand the merits of being a public servant, learning the values of providing to others. This hands-on exhibit has transformed this gallery into a mini-city with kiddie police cars and to "drive" around town. This special exhibit just opened and runs through June 8th. This is one you won't want to miss. Take some time to spend with your kids or grandkids; you will be glad you did.  By the ...

Not your typical museum, the famous La Habra Children's Museum is a place to get involved.  It's a fun place for kids of all ages, we've been there many times with our family.  Located in Northern Orange County and housed in the former Union Pacific depot, the building was donated to the city in 1956. After setting vacant for years and the dedication of hard work of many local residents the Children's Museum has become special place of interest in the city. Not your typical museum, this is a "touchy-feely" kind of place where kid's become involved themselves with hands-on exhibits of all types for all ages. There is so much to see and do at this fun place, complete with a merry-go-round and everything is totally hands-on. It's also a place for youngsters to learn valuable life lessons  ...
