Best Museum News

The Intrepid Air and Space Museum (a.k.a. that aircraft carrier on the Hudson with all the jets on it [a.k.a. one of the best museum visits I've ever had]) is getting a Space Shuttle!  The Enterprise, to be precise, which never actually went to space but still, now I've got another excuse to go back to the Intrepid, and that's an excuse I've been waiting a while to have.

The Intrepid is coming to New York because its former home, the Smithsonian Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Center in Washington, is getting the Discovery, a "real" space shuttle that went to space.  So now that totally cool museum that I've always wanted to go to is even more totally cool and I more want to go see it.

Also, here's the time I went to the Intrepid with Andrew in 2006.  It was the day after I graduated from law school and it was the best.

So I just saw the Enterprise at the D.C. museum last month--it's awesomely huge. (Also learned again what a small Mormon world it is: one of the Udvar-Hazy kids is in my stake.) Definitely worth a trip to what sounds like an already great museum.
