@ The Museum Summer 2016: Pittsburgh

June 17 / 16 Happy Friday! For this addition of @ The Museum, I’m doing things differently, mixing things up. We know that the kiddies are out of school during this time of the year and most parents want their kids to do something constructive and fun not only for the kids, but for the whole family. So for this month, July, and August, we’re putting focus on what activities that all families can do and enjoy. I’ve decided to start at Pittsburgh…. (cred: Carnegie Science Center, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and The Frick Art & Historical Center)   Carnegie Science Center Carnegie Science Center offers four floors of interactive experiences, including the world’s largest permanent robotics exhibit, a zero-gravity simulator, the Miniature Railroad & Village®, the Buhl Planetarium, and hundreds of hands-on exhibits. Run, bounce, spin, and climb into Highmark SportsWorks®, a science and sports experience unlike any other! Try exciting sports challenges and explore nearly 30 interactive exhibits about the physics of sports, nutrition …

@ The Museum…..Take Tour of Your Local Museum

May 20 / 16 Hello and Good Afternoon. Today I’m taking a different approach. I want you to start visiting your local art museums, galleries, and any events taking place in the city or town your living in. Take the time to appreciate what the artists, photographers, or sculptures have worked hard to create. I visited the Columbus Museum a few weeks ago and I enjoyed just learning not on the exhibitions, but as well as the story about the piece and the artist creating it. So do yourself a favor. This weekend go to an art museum, a gallery….learn something new for a change. Enjoy your Friday!               featured image: unknown

@ The Museum: Your Turn to Search….for Holiday Events

November 20, 2015 Morning, morning, morning! Friday is here….doing something different with @ The Museum today. Not only the Thanksgiving Holidays, but Christmas is pretty much around the corner. This is not going to be the regular @ The Museum post, nope not even. I’ve scoured for museums across the US and outside the US, bringing you what museum of whatever city has in store, but now it’s your turn and it’s pretty simple: check out your local museums to see what exhibits and events they have going on for the Holiday Season. Not only museums, but also see if there are any art shows, music events, I mean you just can’t stay at home stuffing yourself. Get out and see what your city has to offer. There is art, music, and other great creative stuff going on. All you have to do is call or search the web. Enjoy the rest of your Friday and be blessed!           photo cred: unknown
