A Little Culture


Dear son and I have been studying ancient civilizations in history this year.  So I thought we'd make a trip to the Cincinnati Art Museum to see some of the artifacts.

While we were there, we toured the various galleries and enjoyed the variety of art forms they have on exhibit.


Paintings


Sculpture


And, the reason we came; ancient artifacts...



Seeing pictures in a history book is one thing, but seeing the actual object really brings it to life.


The museum, built in 1886, is a work of art in itself.


We didn't tour all the museum.  There is so much to see and they have added a lot of interactive stops throughout for children.


We'll go again this winter to get rid of any cabin fever that might creep in.  


After the museum, we headed to one of the parks that over looks the river.

We couldn't have asked for prettier weather for our little family outing.

It was one of those days that make you feel happy and fulfilled.

I hope you are enjoying your Saturday.
