Yesterday we went to the South Yorkshire Transport Museum, because we thought it would be nice for my partner's dad to go. He used to be a coach driver in the 60s and the volunteers at the museum kept looking for him to ask him about his time a driver! It was so funny, he was like a celebrity!
The photo has nothing to do with the caption, I just liked the caravan over the other stuff
This was our valentine's date!
The National Space Museum was holding a valentine's event, where you got a three course meal and were seated in the museum itself! Our table was in the Solar System, and the food was (I'm sorry I can't help myself) out of this world. I've never eaten such a delicious piece of lamb.
Once we'd eaten, we got to wander around some of the galleries on the ground floor, and got to "smell" the universe in an experiment. Did you know that Jupiter most likely smells like almonds? Apparently the chemical make up of the planet overall is similar to that of almonds. Who knew?
At 10pm we were called to the Planetarium to have a tour of our night sky, then we were free to explore again.
I'm so glad we booked this event. It was just wonderful.
At the weekend, we went to the National Videogames Museum in Sheffield. It was fun playing video games all day! This museum didn't just have exhibits on display, most of the exhibits we're playable. They had everything from original upright arcade machines all the way through to new PC games.
The venue wasn't massive, but it has potential to grow.
They also had a huge display for Donkey Kong - a screen each for every platform it's ever been ported to since the original arcade game!
Today we went round the South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum and it wasn't what I was expecting.
From the outside it looked unassuming, but inside it was packed full of different aircrafts, mostly military, but there were some interesting civilian ones too. Some of the aircrafts are in various stages of restoration too, which is work done by volunteers who clearly love what they do.
There was a display about the Falklands war and as it was the 35th anniversary since the conflict ended, and I have to say I was pretty ignorant of the details until today, even though my uncle was assigned there all that time ago.
Since we're still in that weird time between Christmas and New Year, and I'm still off work, we thought we'd get out of the house and do something, and other than two other families, we had the place to ourselves nearly! I recommend visiting a museum at this time of year - it was so quiet!
Gorgeous Chihuly glass art exhibit at my city's Arts & Culture museum. They had a bunch of other great artists in this exhibit as well as some local art and some really cool historical handicrafts.
Went to the Longwood Mansion in Natchez, MS. It was a mansion built by Mr. Nutt, and was going to be 6 stories, but due to the Civil War and then his death, the only floor that was complete was the basement. So, his widow and 8 children lived in the basement.
Intrepid Museum and silly-fun Star Trek exhibit
