Traveling Exhibits in Raleigh

Maybe, like me, you are looking for great educational field trips for your kids. Well, time is running out for a few great exhibits, so we will be getting out to these in the next few weeks!

Discover the real George Washington at the Museum of History ( Closes January 21st) See artifacts from Mount Vernon that rarely travel the country. Raleigh is the only city in the Southeast getting this exhibit. Check out the website for educational resources for young and old, not to mention great links to other resources.

Over at the fabulous Museum of Art is ... American Chronicles: The work of Norman Rockwell (closes Jan 30th) as well as Fins and Feathers: Original Children’s Book Illustrations from The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art which highlights illustrations from children's books (also closes Jan 30th and is FREE!).
While you're there, you could also check out the works of John James Audobon in a standing exhibition which is unique in the country.

If you're more in to science, check out Animal Grossology at the Museum of Natural Science (through April). Looks like you need to have a strong stomach for this one! Maybe we should gather up and go as a group!

These are just a few of the temporary exhibits in the area that you will want to see!

** Please note: Some of these exhibits have charges that vary by ages of those participating.
