You all know how I feel about museums; they’re the best! Whenever I visit a new (or old) city, I always make sure to check out the museums, especially if there’s a cool new exhibit going on. And although I’ve been to NYC more times than I can count, I’ve never been to the Museum of the Moving Image (until recently!).
Since I’m such a huge Jim Henson fan, I knew I had to check out The Jim Henson Exhibition at the Museum of the Moving Image during my trip to New York last month. I decided not to bring my DSLR camera on this trip (in an attempt to “live more in the moment”, something I’ve been doing a lot more of lately) but I did take a few pictures on my iPhone. So I thought it would be fun to share them with you all today.
Here are a few photos from the Museum of the Moving Image:
“It reaffirms that all of us are America — that African-American history is not somehow separate from our larger American story, it’s not the underside of the American story, it is central to the American story.” – Barack Obama
Although I was in DC on the opening day of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, I didn’t get to visit at the time since I didn’t have tickets. Even though the National Museum of African American History and Culture is a free museum, like the other Smithsonian museums, tickets (which you can request for free online) are needed to visit. Long story short, I finally got tickets to visit (I requested the tickets in August and I got to visit in December) and I can’t even put into words how excited I was to visit!

No trip to Milwaukee is complete without a visit to the Harley-Davidson Museum! Fun fact: The iconic American motorcycle manufacturer was founded out of a small shed in 1903 by William S. Harley and brothers Arthur and Walter Davidson in Milwaukee! Hence why the museum, which is dedicated to the more than 100-year history of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, is located in Milwaukee.

Happy Monday everyone. I JUST got back home from my mini Midwest Road Trip, in partnership with Subaru! During my road trip I got to test out the new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. Stay tuned for a full review SOON! I really love traveling and I had such a great time exploring the Midwest. Speaking of traveling, I’m heading to DC this weekend and then I’m off to NYC next week!
While on my Midwest road trip I got to visit so any fun new cities. The second stop on my road trip (since I’m counting Chicago as the first stop) was Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although I visited Wisconsin a lot when I was a kid (mostly Wisconsin Dells), this was my first time in Milwaukee.
It’s a tradition of mine to always visit an art museum, or any museum, whenever I visit a new place. So obviously my first stop in Milwaukee was the Milwaukee Art Museum! I was super excited to visit the Milwaukee Art Museum because it’s one of the largest museums in the United States!
Here are some of my favorite photos from the Milwaukee Art Museum:
Along with the Disney Parks and Target, I’d definitely have to say that museums are one of my “happy places!” I don’t know what it is but I could spend hours roaming the halls of any given museum. It doesn’t matter if it’s an art, history or science museum, I love them all. I’m so fortunate to have grown up (and still live in) in Chicago, a city filled with dozens upon dozens of amazing museums.
As I’ve mentioned on the blog countless times, plenty of Chicago museums offer free days to Illinois residents. One of those being the Museum of Contemporary Art, which offers free admission on Tuesdays. Thus making “Tuesdays At The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago” a regular thing for me!
There have been so many new exhibits added since my last visit to The MCA, to see the Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats its Own Leg Exhibit. That’s what I love about museums, no matter how many times you visit them, there’s always something new to see.
