Age re­stric­tion needed at steam mu­seum

RE: Safety at the Steam Mu­seum

Re­cently, my wife and I, along with some vis­i­tors from out of town, vis­ited the Mu­seum of Steam and Tech­nol­ogy on Wood­ward Av­enue. On this day, it was a free event which I was surprised at. Ob­vi­ously, there were a lot of peo­ple and many par­ents brought their tod­dlers along, and when I say tod­dlers I mean tod­dlers. They did noth­ing but run around yelling and scream­ing in a very dan­ger­ous en­vi­ron­ment with­out any parental su­per­vi­sion. I was wait­ing for one of them to ei­ther fall down the stairs or into one of the pits at the Pump­ing Sta­tion. I sug­gest the city put an age re­stric­tion on chil­dren at­tend­ing this sec­tion of the tour (Pump­ing Sta­tion) or suf­fer the con­se­quence of a pend­ing law­suit.

Re­gard­less of the stress I felt dur­ing this visit, the mu­seum is a must-see for ev­ery­one. Ralph Corn­ing, Stoney Creek
