A -new- ‘thing’ for Americans has occurred. It’s called “Smithsonian Museum” day! YEAH!
I received an email that on the fourth Saturday in September, the Smithsonian Museum and its members, have ‘FREE’ entrance in museums. The email that I received had information on registering and printing your ‘ticket’ for the event. (I suppose that the registration and ticket allows for the ‘first-to-accept’ the offer to get-into-the-museum and there is crowd-control in that not too many free tickets are not allowed.)
My GPS address was not the correct address for the museum, but it was the address for Delta Headquarters, which was close to the museum. A guard at the gate gave me the diretions to the next road which contained the museum entrance. (Parking is free.) On the day that I attended, there were two airplanes for the museum, but the largest was ‘open’ and available to be toured. There was a long line and I had to wait about 30 minutes before entering. The Boeing 747 which has stairs and an elevator for entrance was the tour of the day. Participants enter the door and view the airplane that has had seats removed. Each person who enters is able to see what they want and to go upstairs to see the cockpit. (I.E. ‘no’ tourguide.) The pictures tell-the-story. Hope that you enjoy them.
<<As always, any comments that you have about the website would be appreciated. I have another website. It is about my 1971 MGB (old English 2-seater convertible-top car). The url address is : http://www.PuddinInTheMGB.wordpress.com
Additional note: Since my posts have many pictures, it may take some time to load. Because of the pictures, it is best to view these webpages using a desktop (in my opinion. Because the size of the pictures will be larger.) >>
