Can’t Miss Museum Exhibits
Summer is the perfect time to head indoors to museums and check out new exhibits. Brush up on New York at its core or cigar box art in New Mexico and more.
New York at Its Core at the Museum of the City of New York – Permanent: The Museum of the City of New York spent five years creating this much-anticipated permanent exhibit on the Big Apple’s rise to prominence since its founding in the 1600s. More than 400 objects address four themes: money, density, diversity and creativity. Among the rare objects on display: a sterling silver and wood ceremonial shovel from the groundbreaking of the first subway (1900), a silver cocktail shaker and cup made by Tiffany & Co. during Prohibition (1928), a baseball signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers, and Milton Glaser’s original concept sketch for the “I Heart New York” campaign. Iconic New Yorkers such as Alexander Hamilton, Walt Whitman, “Boss” Tweed, Emma Goldman, J.P. Morgan, Fiorello La Guardia, Jane Jacobs, Jay-Z and dozens more, are featured throughout the exhibit.
The Museum of the Creation, Kentucky – Permanent: This museum takes you into the book of Genesis and beyond…mention our trip to Washington, DC and Beyond and the fact that we will be going to this museum when we travel to Kentucky. Sandra can elaborate upon this museum because she has been there.
The Ark Encounter, Kentucky – Permanent: This museum will put into place the events of the great flood that happened over the entire earth. Mention our trip to Washington, DC and Beyond as this is a place we will visit. Archeology has proven many aspects of this flood – an example would be the Grand Canyon and Archeology continues to prove this. Sandra can elaborate upon this museum because she has been there, too.
The Kentucky Horse Park, Kentucky – Permanent: This is horse museum and is most interesting. It will take you throughout the history of the horse in Europe as well as in the United States. Racing, Wild West, Farming and other aspects of the animal are featured. Witness shows, demonstrations, and ride horseback or in a carriage. We will be visiting this Park/Museum during our visit to Washington, DC and Beyond.
