This picture was taken in the Natural History Museum, part of Smithsonian, Washington, DC
This one is from Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, same place. It is between Natural Museum and Art Museum. This sculpture just made me smile. Some of the sculptures I just did not get it, but it is OK :)
This one was taken in Jamestown, VA. Kids had fun and learned a lot. They told that they learned here in the museum town more than in school :)
There is one more place I want to share we visited. It is in Alexandria, VA. It is called Torpedo factory. They used to make torpedoes here but it is not a fascinating fact that I wanted to share :) This factory is converted into studios for artist to work there, display there work and you can talk to "live" artists. They have painting, sculptures, photography, fiber art, sumi-e painting, beading, etc, etc studios. I am including the link to Torpedo Factory if you will have a time to take a look, but if you will be in the area, I would really think it would be a great place to visit. It is an absolutely unique experience comparing to just galleries visiting.
