Free Factory Tours – Free Tours for Families Nationwide
If you’re looking for an unusual way to spend the afternoon, then check out the map of Free Factory Tours in the United States. Whether you’re looking for some free fun at home or on vacation, check out this awesome resource. It’s the chance to show your kids up close how things are made. It’s like a real-life episode of How it’s Made or Mr. Roger’s Picture Picture. And, it gives a whole new level of appreciation for the hard working folks who make it all happen. Not to mention, a new appreciation for the products themselves. It’s a great way to teach kids not to be wasteful when they realize it’s not just as easy as opening a package. Because, a lot went into getting it to that point.
I love learning how things work. I once went to a plastic manufacturing plant where they made the plastic bottles for Mobil Oil. Watching that good old ingenuity at work is inspiring. It amazes me how much thought and effort has gone into making a little bottle. This interest is probably from all those years of watching “Picture Picture” on Mister Roger’s Neighborhood. For example, who knew that the process of making a marble could be so amazing? Not to mention how food is made. Or any of the regular, everyday stuff we take for granted.
So, how cool is it that you can actually tour many of these plants for free!? Even better – it’s all in one handy reference website. Let us know what gems you find and if you take any free tours!
