Culture Thursdays

It is too often that we pine for the wonders of far away lands and don’t realize the richness right in front of our eyes!  In my attempt to take advantage of that richness, I instituted a “Cultural Thursday” experiment this summer.  Every Thursday (with only a few exceptions) I travel to Washington, DC and visit a new museum, gallery, or park.  I shared a few of my photos from the trip to the National Gallery’s Scultpure Garden a few weeks ago, and since then, I have been to several of the Smithsonian museums:  the Hirshhorn Museum (my very favorites), the Freer Gallery, the “Castle”, the African Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

    That is a great idea! I gotta take my kids to DC.

    Wonderful idea! Here in Ottawa, we’re inundated with museums (same reason as DC :) ) and every Thursday, they have free admission and they’re open late. Clearly, Thursday is a museum day across the continent!

    that is a wonderful idea. I am going to see if we can do something similar – there is too much in our back yard to not do this.

    I was at the Museum of Natural History this spring. My friends took a picture of the elephant as well, but unfortunately from a much more compromising angle.
