PA State Museum 3/28/11

Scott and I spent the morning at the PA State Museum this past Saturday.  It's right downtown, only about 10 minutes from us.  We had never visited before and I was pleasantly surprised...plenty to see and do, even for a 16 month old and they have a great play area as well.  I'm sure we'll return sometime soon.

This Mastodon skeleton was found in Marshalls Creek PA back in the 60's!  It is impressive because it was discovered in this state but also because it was a true skeleton that was found and not a fossil.  I was just recently put on display at the museum.  There were only 3 bones missing!  Pretty cool that Mastodons and Wooly Mammoths once roamed this area!

of course, we found a choo choo!
