Pennsylvania State Museum

In 2014 we went to the State Museum of Pennsylvania on our way back from NYC. It was one of the best of all the state museums we have been in.  It celebrates all aspects of its history.  Here is a small gallery of the art from that visit.

Nothing New Under The Sun…

I think the title above came from Solomon but for me it refers to my uRV (micro-RV).  I have spent the last couple of years putting stickers and saying on the camper cap. I think it looks pretty unique.

I’m not done with the Deusenberg Museum yet but I kind of figure you can’t take too much of that beauty at one time so I need to ration it out.  🙂  But I did fine another museum behind that one that is worth the visit if you are in the area.  I admit that I got there just 10 minutes before that closed so they let me take a quick “free” visit. I managed to quickly snap some pictures of the trucks there.

Lincoln Museum – Springfield IL

ISOA BannerAbraham Lincoln is one of my favorite presidents. His library in Springfield Illinois is and impressive place.  The pictures here are life-like figures from his cabinet. Most of these guys thought he was just a yokel who could be easily controlled. They later found out just how wrong they were.

Praire Museum – Colby Kansas

We just happened to come across this museum on our way home from Santa Fe this Spring.  It is a fascinating place that tells the story of the Upper Plains of Kansas. One thing I do know is that the Upper Plains is a very windy place.  I think it could be the wind energy capital of the world if they filled it with wind turbines….
