A couple of weeks ago, I visited Philadelphia's Natural History Museum for the first time. I can't believe I've lived in Philadelphia for nearly six years without hearing more about it. The museum has three floors worth of animal dioramas (created in the 1950s), dinosaur skeletons, interactive games for kids and a room full of live butterflies. I took my illustration students to the museum to sketch, but definitely plan to return on my own again. There's just something so eerie about glass cases full of still animals. They're really beautiful and creepy at the same time.

 I'll post my sketches from the Museum tomorrow. If you live in Philadelphia and haven't visited the Natural History museum yet, I highly recommend it.
