Last month, to do something fun and different (and to get out of the heat), my friend and I went to the MIM in Scottsdale. It’s a musical instrument museum that has instruments from every country around the world, rotating exhibits and an exploration room where you are allowed to try out some of the instruments.
At each stop along the way, the headphones you’re given as part of the tour will play music corresponding with that exhibit. It was interesting and the touring exhibit had some Elvis memorabilia on loan from Graceland. (Here’s a pic with me and ‘The King’– Well, of me and his jumpsuit!)
The tour brought back memories for me of going on field trips as a kid. I remember a trip to the airport as well as to a living museum showing what life was like in the early, pioneer days of Arizona. I can recall a woman showing us how to grind corn by hand!
Do you have any memories of field trips as a kid? Or maybe later as a chaperone for your own children?
