Museums in Manhattan

The Guggenheim Museum is undergoing repairs and a new exhibition was being installed, so only a few side galleries were open. Still it is pay by contribution Friday night after 5:45 p.m. and many of their most famous paintings were on display. The Halls of Asian Mammals and Peoples are old exhibitions at the American Museum of Natural History yet I found them interesting and still very relevant.

The Hudson River School and Asher B. Durand shows at the New York Historical Society were interesting and very quiet for a Saturday afternoon. And it is just one block away from the AMNH. The cafeteria at the Metropolitan Museum of Art had surprisingly good food. Most Museum food is just awful. We toured some period rooms while there. It seems almost everything at the Met is of such high quality. My sister really loves the Museum and goes often.

Hey Histfan!
I resuscitated my walkalong glider blog so I guess now I'm back in business in this universe again. Glad to see you are still enjoying museums and creature comforts (such as they are) you find along the way. It sounds so nice to hang out with your sib!
