Anniversary Weekend, day 2
Fabergé: From A Snowflake To An Iceberg which saved us some money over just buying the regular museum tickets at the door, so we used that and actually enjoyed the special exhibit quite a bit. We checked out a few other sections of the museum before walking down the street a couple of blocks for lunch at Bodega's Taco Shop because the only food the museum offered was McDonald's for some sad reason. Then we went back to the museum to finish checking out all of the rest of the regular exhibits, from gemstones and crystals to dinosaur bones to Egyptian mummies...which were gross and creepy. Overall it was a very good museum. I have to be careful when I take Nick to a museum because he.reads.EVERYTHING. So it takes him forever to make it through an exhibit. I like to read the headlines, so to speak - find out what it is, look at it, move on. If it's something really unique or cool, I will read more about it. Otherwise I am content to just look at the stuff because let's face it - I'm not going to remember what I read anyway.
