Museum of Natural History

Okay, so recently I posted about a museum in the anthropology building where I take one of my classes. I remembered to bring my camera today, and even got to the building about 30 minutes early . . . only to find out that the museum is closed on Mondays (the only day I have class in that building)!

They do, however, have a few displays in the hallways, so I was able to take a couple pictures of some museum-like displays.
A leopard of some sort.

A porcupine fish.

Miscellaneous creatures.

I will have to go back to that building on a day the museum is open so I can see what's in there. 

Oh, and just because Mother Nature feels like it, she gives us a sunny day with temperatures near 60°F . . . in Iowa on January 30th!! Some winter weather, eh?

We got some of that weather here in NE today. So hard to believe yet so welcome : ) I bet Liv would enjoy the museum.

What a great place. I'll look forward to more pictures of it.

60? Wow! I was happy with 40 today. Enjoy!

Holy cow! A porcupine fish...oh man! I would be in that building for days. On second thought, probably not -the weather seems too nice. Have a nice week! =)

I think it was warm all over. I sure do miss the snow. Love the park like scene.

Looks like an interesting museum, Sonya. Will look forward to more of your photos.

It was in the mid-60s here yesterday. Supposed to be in the 50s today. I'll take it! :)
