2.5 days in downtown Boston in August with 3 kids

What should we absolutely plan to see in that time? Kids are ages 8, 8, 6. Thanks!

With kids that age you probably want to do:

The Children's Museum

The Aquarium

The Make Way For Ducklings statues in the Public Garden (read them the book before you come)

The Frog Pond in the Common and/or the splash fountain on the Greenway

A Duck Tour

Possibly Skywalk at Prudential Building

Possibly Fenway Park Tour depending on their interest

Possibly the Tea Party Museum (they get to throw tea overboard)

And the Museum of Science?

How about an Italian Festival in the North End if the dates work?
