Museum of Natural History – in CT

One weekend in early March my girls asked if they could go into New York City to see the Museum of Natural History. But that weekend turned out to be a wash, and I mean literally – pouring rain all day long, the type of harsh rain pellets that did not and was not going to let up anytime soon. A trip into the city was not happening. And then a little bell went off – I remember a friend once told me to check out the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History in New Haven, CT. A mini version of the big one itself, we put on our rain boots and headed for the car. A little over an hour away, it was a much more doable trip than dealing with the rigmarole of New York City and parking (or subwaying), with kids, in the rain. View Post
