Museums are to enjoy

I was thinking that it's a shame I only get around to patronizing the local museums when someone else wants to go. The Twin Cities have an amazing number of good museums, but I haven't even been in some of them.

The strange thing is that when I travel, I always go to the museums in the places I visit. It's like the frosting on the cake.

The Minneapolis Institute of Art will be hosting a showing of Treasures from the Louvre. I hope somebody will want me to go with them.

(This posting every day is straining my brain! Only three more days to go.)

I love your city, haven't been there since I was 21. Recently saw Garrison Keillor though in Chapel Hill NC, as my mother's day present!

I know what you mean about only going to museums when visitors arrive. I highly recommend the Museum of Russian Art - nice size (smallish but not too small) and some really great paintings.

3 more days -- you can do it, Ms. Sparrow!

I'm enjoying the extra posts!

I guess it is just hard to get out and go to local museums. We have three tiny "museums" -- they don't really deserve that fine moniker -- and I do kind of forget about them...
