Monika and I went insane over the mineral display at the Museum. I think we spent the most time there, and at the end of our visit, we were in agreement that the mineral hall was the awesomest part of the trip. The. Awesomest.

The only thing that came close to the mineral room was probably the bird room.
Because that's where we finally learned what birds are! Class: Aves
|Monika makes the discovery!|
And Science marches on.
