    Default How about those museums?

    Ok, ladies and gentlemen.....drum roll please......
    I'd like to start a list of museums. Children like them, even if they complain about them ahead of time. There are a lot of them in Louisiana.
    They make great field trips and can add a weath of material for little or no fee. I'm going to start the list, but please feel free to add your own choices and favorite haunts. They don't even have to be major museums, if you know of a little "hole in the wall" place that has an interesting museum or collection please add it to our list.

    Thanks so much!
