National Geographic Earth Explorers

For my last event while in San Antonio, I chose to visit the National Geographic Earth Explorers exhibit at the Witte Museum.  The website explains that you will “Follow six, National Geographic scientists on their adventures through Earth’s diverse eco-zones and discover what it takes to survive and study in some of the planet’s most extreme conditions.”  The highlights are the videos sprinkled throughout the exhibit, but these photos will give you an idea of what to expect.

Austin Toy Museum

Today was Austin Museum Day with free access to several museums across the city.  Did you know that the Austin Toy Museum was a thing?  I found it over in East Austin on Cesar Chavez Street.  It is more of a warehouse than anything else, but they let you wander through and remember some of the toys you had as a kid.  Pretty cool!  Check it out if you find yourself in downtown Austin.
