I just returned from some hard core Halloween shopping. We now have tons of projects and things! I’m pretty excited.
Also, Candy Corn M&Ms are delicious.
That’s not what this post is about, though. You’ll see posts on these things in the future.
Yesterday, while I was thinking to my keyboard about my many issues, I mentioned that Trinity and I had done some adventuring. That is what this post is about.
While looking over Down Home South Jersey’s weekend events post, I noticed that one local museum was free because it was participating in Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day. I checked out the website to see all the participating museums within driving distance.
After going over the list a few times, Trinity and I decided to try The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. That idea went out the window when I realized I would have to drive and park in Philly. Alone. No thank you. My anxiety gets so bad; I almost get a panic attack thinking about it. I’ve done it before, but I’d rather not do it again.
I was thinking about just driving somewhere and taking the train into the city, when I noticed another Natural History museum on the list. This one in Delaware. It was 10-15 minutes farther away. I didn’t mind, though, because this place had a parking lot and was not in the middle of a huge city.
Besides, I’ve been to The Academy of Natural Sciences before. They do have an amazing dinosaur exhibit, but the rest of the museum left a lot to be desired.
Well, the dinosaurs are pretty much all I really wanted to see. Looking at dinosaur bones is my favorite pastime.
So, I made the decision to head out to The Delaware Museum of Natural History. It was a nice museum, but on the small side. I was HIGHLY disappointed in their dinosaur section; they only had two skeletons. They did, however, have some nice hiking trails behind the museum. We spent a total of an hour and a half there. That was time to explore all the trails, the whole museum, and the gift shop, as well as grab some snacks from the vending machine. It was lunchtime, and we were hungry.
I’m not sorry I picked that museum, though, because Megan went to one in Philly. She said it was really crowded. So… yeah. Philly traffic, worrying about parking, and crazy crowds. That sounds like a recipe for a Pami panic attack or, at least, a grumpy Pami.
I made it sound like an awful time… that wasn’t my intention. We actually had a lot of fun!
I’m going to post a ton of photos now.
That’s just a small sampling of the pictures I took today. I won’t flood you with all of them.
Now I want to go find another museum with more fossils. I’m a little let down.
What is your favorite type of museum? What is the best museum you’ve ever been to? Do you have a favorite museum? Do you hate museums and never go to them? I have a lot of questions.
I love to go to all differety types of museums! I really adore them.
