“Cool, I didn’t know that!”

Exploring is one of my favorite things to do because I love learning about things; past present, and future.

Museums offer a location where there is condensed knowledge. Do I like paying money to go in a museum? No way, BUT, I think of all of the sights and sounds in there and all of the cost they have to incur to keep the place up of me to
