Yesterday the boys and I went to the Bakken Museum, an old mansion that now houses the world's only medical electricity museum. It was founded by Earl Bakken, the inventor of the pacemaker. The boys are a little young to care about the history of electricity and electromagnetism, but the museum had a lot of hands-on displays and exhibits, so they enjoyed the time there.

One exhibit was a 12-minute multi-media presentation of Frankenstein. Nils was a little scared (mostly of the thunder and lightning), but they had fun. Anders enjoyed having confetti dance in his hand with static electricity (I don't know who the girl is in the picture--we just thought her hair stood out better than Anders' did).
