The Field Museum - Chicago

The conference that I attended was held in The Field Museum which was quite a plus. We got to go to workshops on gardening and wander through the museum during our free time. I must confess to spending at least one workshop period in the museum instead of class but there was so much to see. It was hard to resist so I didn't. I saw a sign the first day that pointed up a staircase and said "See Sue". I stupidly thought this was some member of the staff. It turned at to be a dinosaur named Sue. *giggles* Another time I got lost in the native Indian section and almost missed my own workshop. That would have been very bad. I hope you enjoy the collection of pictures. For those who don't know, The Field Museum is a natural history museum.

Is this the same Museum where they have the lions from 'THe Ghost and the Darkness', only the real ones?

Looks very interesting, especially with Sue there. *g*

Yes, they are there. It was a little creepy walking through the animal sections. Everything looked so real (and alive) After seeing Night at the Museum it was hard going through those exhibits especially the one that had the monkeys. I kept expecting them to come alive or move or something. Very weird feeling.

I'm not sure I'd have made any meetings, I'd have been wandering in the museum foll time.

It was a toss up sometimes.

I love museums like that. Been to one in London. A very nice place to wander.

Love the totem-poles and the round stone. Looks like it's mayan or Aztek?
