A tropical wave is expected to soak South Florida this weekend, but that doesn’t mean you should be bored.

Depending on the severity of the weather, you can still duck out in Boca Raton or Delray Beach and partake in some fun indoor activities. Here are some suggested things to do this weekend in southern Palm Beach County:

» Play a little pinball. The Silverball Museum in downtown Delray Beach is lined with dozens of pinball machines and other arcade classics. Their slogan is, “Art you can interact with.” Shield yourself from the rain and spend some time revisiting your childhood. An all-day pass costs $25, but you can pay by the hour. The Silverball Museum is at 19 NE 3rd Ave.

» Appreciate art. Take a walk inside the Boca Raton Museum of Art and check out collections of drawings, paintings, sculptures and other platforms. Plus, the museum is offering free admission in the month of August — so why not check it out this weekend? The museum is at  501 Plaza Real.

» Drunk Shakespeare. Yes, you read that right. If you don’t want to indulge in classic art forms, head to Irishmen Bar in Boca Raton on Saturday night and watch stage actors perform Shakespeare tipsy. The Outré Theatre Company is putting on the fundraiser performance at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $5 for students and $10 for everyone else. Irishmen is at 1745 NW Boca Raton Blvd.

» Tea time. While west Delray’s Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens draws several visitors to its outdoor gardens, it’s indoor exhibits and performances are well worth your time. The museum offers guided tours of the exhibits, tea room and gardens on Saturday afternoons. Learn a little about the culture and watch an authentic Japanese tea ceremony. For more information or to schedule a tour, call  561-495-0233. The museum is at 4000 Morikami Park Rd.
