Show & Tell

For this week's Show & Tell, we go to Williamsburg, VA once again. I was the first one to arrive and the last one to leave the Braces Bunch Gathering...so on Sunday afternoon, before my flight, I went to the Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum.




I have a fascination with the weird and bizarre, which is something I can share with my son. I have found him reading with the same veracity that I had as a child, all those Ripley's books. I have fond memories of watching the old Jack Palance show...so, when I had found out there was a Ripley's Museum in Williamsburg, I hoped that I could go. I had told my son that I might go there. As I was getting my ticket to go into the museum, my family called...and I heard in the background my son's voice--and my husband telling him that "yes, she is there right now!"

I made sure to take some pictures and video for him.


A ceremonial skull (neat-o!)


Two headed cow (moo! moo!)


A few strands of President George Washington's hair (with certification that its authentic)




All in all, I did not find the museum as creepy as I would have liked, but it was still an interesting diversion and I was glad to share it in some way with my son.



Please stop over to participate!

I wanted to go there, but we didn't think Abbey was ready to see some of the strange things yet! Next time we'll drop in.

Thanks for the idea to link up to Suzy's blog. I thought about it this morning, but got distracted before I posted.

If you like these things, if you are ever in Philly, you should visit the Mutter Museum:
