World Cup tops them all

June 11, 2014

The excitement that surrounds high profile sporting events is something of beauty.

Travel ... but first to the library

June 11, 2014

Recently, my husband and I went on a vacation. A long-awaited and hard-earned vacation.  After our camera was pick-pocketed on the last day of our Caribbean cruise honeymoon in 2011, robbing us of nearly every single one of our photographs, we were determined to repeat the trip as soon as we could afford it.  We wanted to retake those photographs, to recapture those memories, and to feel less cheated and violated…because that’s exactly how being pick-pocketed made us feel.

Space Camp is the Museum’s annual summer camp that lets students in grades 2nd through 7th train just like the astronauts do. Some of the highlights of last year’s camp included: flying in an airplane at the Neil Armstrong Airport, building a model rocket that gets launched, aquatic training at the YMCA’s pool, and running through tough obstacle courses on the Museum grounds.
