The technical museum in Carol Park is truly one of Bucharest’s finest. Although we were a bit lost amongst diagrams of alternating current and electrostatic machines, the exhibits were fascinating and prompted a wide range of questions and discussion. When we reached the steam trains, bicycles and collection of old cars we were right back on track however, and were able to make fantastic links to our learning in class. Having missed the brief snow flurry while we were inside, we headed out to the park for lunch, a walk up to the National Heroes Monument, and a quick whizz round the playground before the buses returned to take us back to school. The children were then given postcards from the museum to write about their favourite exhibit, and take home for mums and dads.
