  • worth checking out if you are on campus. saw an exhibit on a western artist last summer (can't remember his name) that was very well done. "the bible" is there
  • While I was there they they had a comprehensive showcase on Frank Reaugh that was organized very well. They also had a Gutenberg Bible on display which I found compelling. To my surprise with little advertising, off to the side they had the first photograph ever taken which I enjoyed very much.
  • It looks like it would be great but it's closed until Aug 15th. We will have to come back.
  • Must see small free museum on University campus. World class research archive of popular media.
  • I went here with a group for a guided tour of the Alice in Wonderland exhibit. I had never heard about this place and was very pleasantly surprised. Our tour guide patiently and knowledgeably answered many questions. The exhibit was quite interesting. I have a new place for my parents to go next time they visit while I'm at work.
