a day at the museum

We took the boys to The Bakken Museum on one of those nice mid-March “spring feel” days when the temperature was in the 60s. The museum is located right off the west shore of Lake Calhoun. I know this area very well because my high school is a few blocks away from the lake. It’s a place that filled with great memories of my late teens and early 20s.

Lake Calhoun, from the south shore looking north at downtown skyline. The water was still frozen, looking rather ugly, so I skipped it all and embraced the vast blue sky on that day.

As for the museum, the admission is free every second Saturday of the month, and donation is greatly appreciated. The museum is small, and housed in an English Tudor mansion with beautiful architecture style.

Here is a brief description of the museum.

A one-of-a-kind museum exploring the mysteries of our electrical world. Inspiring a passion for science and its potential for social good by helping people explore the history and nature of electricity and magnetism.
