The Anchorage Museum
|You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave!|
Oh wait... wrong situation entirely.*
This past Friday my fiancé and I had the opportunity to go on a much anticipated date! It had been a while since we actually went out and did something together considering I had a busy semester. Since it was the weekend before finals, I decided that it would be perfect to give myself a pre-finals break that would double as a date at the Anchorage Museum.
It had been a while since I'd been there, but I remember the coolest part of the museum was the Imaginarium Discovery Center, a space that is devoted to 80 exhibits, most of which are interactive.
|I spent the most time watching this snapping turtle named Chomper.|
|I wonder how old he is? He's got pretty epic skin!|
|His markings are magical!|
|There's a good size comparison for you.|
|Our true thermal nature is revealed via infrared.|
|What a great evolutionary advantage you've got there!|
|So colorful and mellow.|
|This is how I looked after I finished my last final of the semester.|
|I forgot what kind of fish these were. However, I do remember how golden they looked in the light.|
|I didn't notice he was there at first, he blended in so well!|
|This was a display that was in constant motion, and it was difficult to not just stand there and gawk at it.|
|This Christmas tree is easily the tallest I've ever seen inside of a building.|
|This was a lot taller than the Christmas tree, and is thought to be around 150 years old.|
|The christmas lights downtown.|
|One of Robert Wyland's Whaling Walls is downtown.|
He has painted sea creatures on buildings all over the world.
|The Performing Arts Center. I've only been here a handful of times, and one of them|
was to see Cats live. So good.
