museum love [high desert museum]

MUSEUM: High Desert Museum 
WHERE: just outside Bend, Oregon

SPECIAL EXHIBIT: The Art of Exploration

ALSO SEEN: incredibly detailed dioramas, beautiful embroidery, desert tortoises, birds of prey

CAFE: yes (but we just grabbed a juice out of a vending machine) 
SHOP: lots of knick-knacks, not enough books 
NOTES:a lot of information, artifacts, and creatures are presented, but in a way that is accessible to all different attention spans and interests; the special exhibit was a really lovely surprise
