Indiana State Museum

indiana state museumLast week featured a fun two-day getaway for me and daughter #3. First stop:  the Indiana State Museum. I hope every state has a museum that is this neat.

Granted, it can be a little frustrating going through a museum with kids, most of whom seem to have a mentality which enjoys running from exhibit to exhibit, wildly pushing buttons on anything that appears interactive. It’s no wonder those exhibits are often broken.

  1. I am glad you and Sophie got to spend this quality time together. Lock in the memories.

  2. Back in the day of the big career, I used to run on the canal every day. Seems so long ago that I was a size 8!! The Museum is a treasure and I hope My Man Mitch keeps it going. Looking forward to more!

  3. Sounds like a very enjoyable trip! Making memories are the best way to spend time with your family, both one on one and as a whole family. In my case, the Bear family 31-day trip to CA in 1975 is the best family trip ever, and it will always remain indelible in my mind.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing your thoughts.
