My son Jayden is obsessed with cars and motorcycles, so for his birthday, I took him to the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum.
The museum is located in the greater Birmingham area, which is about 20 minutes from where we live. I thought this would be a great way to celebrate his birthday because the museum has over 1,000 vintage motorcycles as well as cars on display. It’s also connected to a track where we watched a live race. I personally love the museum because it kept Jayden occupied for 3 or 4 hours. It would be a great spot to take him during the Summer when the weather is hot outside. He loves going to playgrounds, but the heat is becoming too much for me. So, I have been finding more indoor playgrounds and attractions that have climate control, so that I can be comfortable. Jayden doesn’t mind not having air conditioning while he’s having fun. Air conditioning is the last thing that’s on his mind. But I need to have A/C in the Summer especially on those days when the temperature is in the 90s. And over the last few years, Birmingham has been getting really hot Summers. So, now instead of spending most of the time in outdoor playgrounds, I take Jayden to indoor places that have air conditioning. They include libraries, indoor adventure parks and playgrounds, and now I can add the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum to the list. Anyway, Jayden had a blast at the museum, and I am sure he can’t wait to go back. And as long as it is air conditioned, it will be a place that we frequent.
