Museum

A museum (/mjuːˈzəm/ mew-ZEE-əm; plural musea or museums) is an institution that cares for (conserves) a collection of artifacts and other objects of artistic, cultural, historical, or scientific importance. Many public museums make these items available for public viewing through exhibits that may be permanent or temporary. The largest museums are located in major cities throughout the world, while thousands of local museums exist in smaller cities, towns and rural areas. Museums have varying aims, ranging from serving researchers and specialists to serving the general public. The goal of serving researchers is increasingly shifting to serving the general public.

St. Louis City Museum

Basically a huge jungle gym for adults! "Reaching no farther than municipal borders for its reclaimed building materials, City Museum boasts features such as old chimneys, salvaged bridges, construction cranes, miles of tile, and even two abandoned planes!" -CityMuseum.org

I am taking a trip to Nashville this labor day and we are going an hour out of our way during the trip to go to the CANDLES holocaust museum. As far as I know Eva still does guided tours of the museum. I feel it would be a great honor to even be in her presence.

Check out this underwater museum/coral reef near Cancun, Mexico. These eerie life-like sculptures are the work of Jason deCaires Taylor.
