Museum of the Earth


Had family in town and we visited the Museum of the Earth in Ithaca, NY, a paleontological research institution. The museum was really interesting and the architecture and the displays were awesome! As we approached the building, a skeleton of a whale drew us in. As we entered it became apparent that the skeleton we thought was just sitting in a room was actually hanging from the ceiling! We followed a ramp that took us to the displays underground. The walk felt as if you were descending into the earth. Of course I checked out all the murals and 3D displays. I always think that a fun job would be to create museum panoramas! Check out the museum when you can!
