Now that the excitement of the Fourth of July has past, it is a great time to revisit the many museums in the Boston area. Whether you make your own lip-balm or record a song at the Boston Children's Museum, explore the harbor at the New England Aquarium, ride in a Fiat at the Larz Anderson Microcar show, or participate in a family basket-bombing workshop at the Fruitlands Museum you are sure to have fun and learn something new. The Boston Children's Museum also has a Morningstar Access Program this weekend, allowing children with special needs to visit the museum without the usual crowds. Free and affordable summer movies continue this weekend with Despicable Me showing in Arlington, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory playing in Somerville, Monsters' University playing at the Prudential Center, and Field of Dreams showing at Christopher Columbus Park. If you prefer live-action entertainment, check out the Puppet Showplace Theater's rendition of Pinocchio or enjoy a free performance of A Midsummer Nights Dream. As you can see from our event calendar, even a quiet weekend in Boston is anything but!
