Subject: Favorite Museums
One of my favorite subjects! Museums!

We found a museum in Paris when we were there at the end of April that was an engineer-type's (my husband) heaven! Thanks to a travelziner we went off looking for the Musee des Arts and Metiers.

This is a fascinating museum with many, many exhibits on scientific/engineering topics. Each large room or wing had one subject matter with English explanations....transportation, communications, materials, construction, scientific instruments, energy, and a large original chapel. I even enjoyed it....the photography section was my favorite because of a great computer program I got pulled into when I sat down to rest. They have many interactive computers, in French and English, and hands on displays. We stayed three hours went out for lunch and my husband went back for two more hours!
