Last weekend I participated in a local event called "Be a Tourist In Your Own Town." Lots of places are open for free or at unusual hours to welcome community members who want to sample what they have to offer.
Usually WKAR is a participant, but since we may have an open house in the fall, we took the year off, so I volunteered at the MSU Museum.
And of course I took the camera!
Here are a few of the collections at the museum. In the future, I'll have more specific posts about these, but these were a few of my favorites from each category.

In another gallery, "Dear Mr. Mandela, Dear Mrs. Parks," a look at letters written to these two great leaders, beautifully displayed, along with information about the various causes they represented.

Every museum worth its salt has natural history -- here is the one of the dioramas with deer.
And of course, I adored the puppets from Asia -- they were from Burma, India, China, Sri Lanka and other countries.
But the number one favorite of the children coming to visit? The one they said they wanted to see before they were even in the door?
