A perk of being an intern/fellow at the Smithsonian...





...You get to go into the museum at all hours! We woke up extra early this morning (before we had to catch the shuttle to Maryland) to go the Museum of Natural History when no one was there! Although they turn off the lights at night, in the mornings they are cleaning, and museum people are able to roam leisurely around... no screaming kids or pressing throngs of people; just you and your camera :) It was really cool to be able to actually see the exhibits, take time to read the information and push all the buttons. Even with waking up early I wasn't able to see all of the exhibits (I didn't see the Dinosaurs), so I'm going to have to go back again before I leave DC- next week is the last week of the program!

  1. Ooooh, I'd be all about the dinosaurs. My nephew is totally into them but there's no good exhibit without driving for hours.

  2. lucky ducky! Have you watched the Battle of the Smithsonian? If you're there before the sun is up, you should REALLY check on those exhibits! :)
