The Museum Tour is a website and catalog  of the brainchild of a former museum director. With a focus on the arts and science. The catalog caters to a niche market of highly educated consumers and educators nationwide. Though many adults purchase educational and inspirational products from their local museum gift shops, not everyone can travel nationally to peruse all of the centers. The catalog features the sort of items one could find in museum gift shops.


Our family loves going to museums and we always peak inside the stores in the museums offen finding things to incorporate into our homescshooling. We are are located there is not a huge selection of museums around, that’s what makes The Museum Tour so great because I can shop from the comfort of my home finding things that are fun for my children and yet educational too.


We have two of items from The Museum Tour that my children love;

Hexbugs Nano Zip line Starter Kit

My boys have been Hexbug fans ever since they came out a few years back. Even my three year old son plays with them, never getting bored. We have never seen anything like a zip line though. There really isn’t much to it! The installation was simple enough for my eight year old put it together in a matter of moments. Once it was together we circled around to watch with curiosity! My husband and I were even intrigued how the Hexbug would crawl around the mazes and attach to the zip line and slide down and do it over again. Plus it comes with extra clips that attach to the Hexbug so if you already have Hexbugs you can add them to this set having more than one Hexbug going at a time! 



 23 pieces for construction

1 extremely rare Hexbug Nano


What child wouldn’t love this?!


One of the other products that The Museum Tour offers  is  Solar Rover. 



 My boys love this kit. So boyish! My husband sat down with both of the older boys and but it together. It gave them a chance to break out the tools and an opportunity for my husband to teach them how to use them to put the Solar Rover together. It was all a learning experience and as a homeschool mom I love! Once the kit was together we explained to them how it operated, no batteries required all using a natural resource – the sun! Once it’s in direct sunlight the Solar Rover does not stop, it travels in a straight line all by itself, no gear controls to fumble with giving children an opportunity to get to watch it go! 


Plus it can be put together two different ways, one using a soda can as the body of the rover and the other you can use the transparent chassis body it comes with. 



1 long and short support arm section

 1 support arm top and case

1 solar panel support

 1 solar panel with wires

1 chassis with rear axle in place
