Right in the heart of Philadelphia, Eastern State Penitentiary was an active prison from 1829-1971. Now it is a museum, and a really interesting place to visit.
This was the bar in the Ice Museum in Chena Hot Springs, Alaska. It was so cool in there in more than one way.
I do love a good neon sign. It is also great to be back in the Mississippi Delta – a poor region rich in tradition, good music, good food and good people. This sign was at the Gateway to the Blues Museum and Visitor Center in Tunica, Mississippi.
This is also from the Model Train Museum in Allentown, Pennsylvania. I love the attention to detail
There were some great scenes when I visited the Model Train Museum in Allentown, Pennsylvania this weekend. Here is one.
This elephant has been in the rotunda at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum since 1959. It was my favorite thing about this particular museum and one of my favorite things in the whole Smithsonian when I was growing up in Washington D.C. I think those trips to the museums as a kid laid a pretty strong foundation for the adult that I’ve become.
This is the Human Rights Museum in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It is quite the striking building down by the waterfront.
I snapped this at the park in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It was just such a beautiful day, I couldn’t help it!
This is the bedroom where Jerry Lee Lewis grew up in Ferriday, Louisiana. Now a museum run by his sister Frankie Jean, this place has a personal and intimate feel not found in most famous people’s homes. Frankie Jean was a wonderful host and provided a fascinating incite into his life and times.
This is the world’s biggest baseball bat and it is right here outside the Louisville Slugger Museum in downtown Louisville, Kentucky. Every now and then I get to come somewhere I’ve never been before – thank you Louisville for such a warm welcome. I will be back.
