    Default The Field Museum,Chicago --Pictures

    After the NADA2016 Show in Chicago, my family and I took a few days R &R and did some traveling. Not being a city guy, we headed up North. But before we did we made a pilgrimage to an Awesome Natural History Museum in Chicago, The Field Museum. We can't pass up science museums and The Natural History Museum here is phenomenal. If I lived near it, it would be my second home, but we only had a few hours, so these are snap shots of some of the exhibits and things that caught my eye.

    Really was a nice museum, but not cheap by any Means!! We could have spent hours more there and not seen it all.

    I could have spend a week in there Al and that is without the camera. In the picture of the entrance one of the banners said "Waking T-Rex". What was that all about? Really enjoyed your photos.

    Thanks for all the great photos Al, I sure wish I could have gone there and spent hours. It was so nice to finally meet you in person, sorry I didn't get to meet your family too. Can you share pics of the rest of your trip?

    The outside looks a little like the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, which we visit at last a couple of times a year.

    Nice shots!
