A Day at the Museum

A couple of weeks ago we went to the Natural History Museum. It was so fantastic! Hardly anyone was there, so we had the run of the place. I can't remember the last time I went to a Natural History Museum, but I had forgotten how much I love the quirkiness of the animal exhibits, the dark and quiet expanse of each Hall. It's not as hot as the Zoo, and the animals are permanently ready for the viewing. My personal favorite was the Hall of North American Mammals. The L.A. Natural History Museum has the youngest full skeleton of a T-Rex on display fighting a Triceratops ("Trirerapops," according to Finn). Needless to say, Finn was in heaven. Then we came home and I mapped out a museum on the wood floor with masking tape. Fun times!

Nautical.
