Two very unique and exciting exhibits are taking place over the next few months in some of our most beloved museums and Stella Quimby of Halfstack Magazine fills us in on the details in the new Spring issue.  

Ends September 7, 2014

"Did you know that Chicago bested New York City, Washington D.C., and St. Louis in 1893 as the home for the World’s Fair?  With more than 27 million people in attendance during its six month run, the fair was a commemoration; a celebration of the 400th Anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ arrival to the New World in 1492.  The fair quickly became an influential social and cultural event." 

Ends July 27, 2014

"Did you know that the Greeks once ruled the mighty and rich kingdom of Egypt?  Alexander the Great’s General, Ptolemy, took over Egypt when the conqueror passed away and his family created a dynasty which reigned for over 300 years.  A dynasty that included the famous Cleopatra, who also happens to be the last pharaoh of this ancestry."
