National Museum of Evolution

I finally bothered to go to the National Museum of Natural History the other day. The mammals section is fairly new and it serves as a great contrast with the older sections of the museum. Curatorial design has improved a lot and there is hope for the depressingly outdated National Air and Space Museum.

Also, the museum is basically our national museum of evolution. I like imagining the homeschooling groups coming to the nation's capital and discovering that their tax dollars are spent "promoting" evolution. Hilarious!
