Recently I visited Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for the second time. Whenever I’m traveling, I ask my cab or shuttle driver, “If I can only visit one attraction in your city before I leave, where do you suggest I go?” On this particular Saturday, it was raining like crazy, and so my hotel shuttle driver Zach suggested an indoor activity: the Carnegie Museum of Art and Natural History.

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge: Share a picture that is UNFOCUSED! Even though this photo is out of focus, I like it! It’s weird and it also reminds me of a fun day at the museum with my friends. By the way, this museum is the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere and is a great kid-friendly destination.

If you’re a museum lover and you find yourself in Dallas, head downtown to the Arts District and visit the Trammell and Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art.
