A Sunday at the Carnegie

This past weekend was my mom’s birthday, and she decided that she wanted to celebrate by going out to brunch at the Carnegie Cafe and then roam the museum. I know that it wasn’t my birthday, but honestly, I was really excited for this plan!

I don’t make it to the museum nearly as often as I’d like to. It really is the perfect way to spend a Sunday – especially when it’s cold and dreary out and all you want is to be inside and warm! I think I tend to take advantage of the fact that the museums are just always there, but every time I’m there I’m impressed again by what a great time I have.

I was especially lucky this time, because there was a National Geographic: 50 Greatest Wildlife Photographs exhibit at the Natural History Museum. Clearly, I am all in for anything involving wildlife photography! I’m sharing just a few of my favorites here, but know that I took pictures of almost every single one of the 50 pictures. It was such a stunning exhibit, and I’m so glad I was able to see it!

And then I also had the chance to browse the Art Museum for a bit, which I don’t always make it to. I’ve seen more of the Natural History side of the museum from their “After Dark” events (when they’re open in the evenings for adults only), but usually the Art Museum isn’t open for those. Honestly, I could have spent an entire day just going through the galleries, but I did get to see a small selection, both newer and older, of all of the pieces. Again, I’m just sharing a few here, but I took so many more pictures.

It was a great way to spend my Sunday – hopefully I’ll spend more days exploring these museums and the other great ones in the city, too.
