one of really cool mosaic animals in the subway tunnel into the museum.
the entrance, which is dedicated to theodore roosevelt for his work on the national parks.
a nifty pattern from one of the windows inside the museum.
my weight on the moon. why can't the scales here be more like the moon?
details from the planet earth exhibit.
peoples of the pacific northwest, the only people exhibit we had time to see. it was dark and hard to get many photos :(
my second favorite exhibit, the hall of biodiversity. the walls were super tall and covered with specimens from all over the world and it was so cool to see different varieties of the same species in conjunction with each other. i want a wall like this in my house or maybe something similar in my future child's room. or is that too much?
well i am not a historian and forget what time period these are from, but it was the time of woolly mammoths, saber tooth tigers, and giant sloths.
a view of the city out of the lookout on one of the upper levels.
and finally........the dinosaurs. this is what i was looking forward to most and it did not fail to deliver. the largest collection of dinosaur bones in the world. truly awe inspiring. if you ever get a chance to visit the museum solely for this reason, please do. i know i have already mentioned my future, non-existent children once in this post, but i will mention them one more time to say that i will make sure they get to see these someday.
