We were up in Raleigh this past weekend. Asa had to work so I went to play. Of course the science nerd I am headed straight for the Natural History Museum.
This is the second time I’ve been there and it didn’t disappoint, again. The museum does a couple of things really well:
1. It’s free!
2. They have an amazing collection of live animals including snakes, fish, turtles, frogs, and insects.
3. They have a butterfly room you can walk through with lots of live butterflies. Warning – it’s closed on Monday’s.
4. They have a whole section of the museum dedicated to research and education. There are science labs with glass windows so you can look inside and see what the scientists are doing. In addition they have “meet the researchers and learn about the research” time.
