  1. That museum seems to have a lot going on. I love history and exploring different cultures. In other words, I wish I could have shared the experience with you.

  2. This space looks a lot like the nature center in central MN – which reminded me of the one I visited as a kid in northern IN. So many of them have a similar look and feel….

  3. So glad that they have a spot to honor and remember the area’s native Americans. I hope it’s a requirement of the curriculums of the area’s school districts. I wish my education had included more of this type of information.
