Harvard’s glass flowers return - The Boston Globe

Harvard’s glass flowers return - The Boston Globe | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Harvard has reinstalled its famous glass flowers at its Museum of Natural History.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
I post this as a memorial to my father, who dragged us to this exhibit many times. He had no interest in flowers in nature and no knowledge of them to enhance his sons' museum experience. Indeed, he had no interest in museums and never took us to another although we lived in Boston with all its wonderful resources. Still, regularly, off we would go to "THE MUSEUM" in Harvard where we would look dully at the glass flowers and then a quick trip to see the fluorescent rocks. Since our mother never accompanied us, this must have been his "creative" way of giving her a break. The saddest thing of all, I never did get him to the art museum or the science museum or even to walk "The Freedom Trail," not even when we were all older and I would come back to Boston to visit. I guess in the end I share this post not so much as a memorial as a plaint and a hope that some parent might be motivated to take his kid(s) on a proper day trip this weekend. If it does, I wish them some fun.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

Here are some wonderful places to visit on a hot summer day (or a rainy day). If you don't live near one of these, consider the museums around you. Art, natural history, science, and so much more: discover the world of museums.
