Museum of the Big Bend
« on: August 29, 2007, 11:38:24 AM »
Anyone who loves the big bend region needs to check out the new museum that just had its grand opening about two weeks ago.

I spent all morning there and was highly impressed.  The old museum in Lawrence Hall left a lot to be desired, but thanks to a generous donation from the McCoy (Building Supplies) Family this new museum has really became fantastic.  There are numerous interactive exhibits and short films that can be watched.  

The Website leaves something to be desired but here is the link:

I to enjoyed the museum last weekend.  The short films were excellent and I never knew about the "Tall canyon pictagraphs". That exhibit and film were worth the trip.  Now there is an exhibit of photos of the Chili cookoff.
If you climb mountains, no explanation is necessary, if you don't , no explanation is possible.
