Museum of Man 3/16/2006

The Museum of Man is a great place to take the kids. Admission is fairly cheap ($6 for adults), and I think it is free in December. I love that you can buy fresh tortillas for 50 cents in the Mayan section. I love the exhibit where you can experience what it’s like to be on an archaeological dig! more

so much i never knew! 10/7/2005

I feel like that people these days are too much into finding things that entertain them. But if you want to learn something, i would go to The Museum of Man because it holds so much information in a tangible way that involves all 5 senses. It's history right in front of you, bringing you in. more

See how man evolve 8/21/2005

This is probably a museum that is not appropriate for children as they probably don’t know what they’re looking at. However, if you are a beginning anthropology college major (or just someone interested in anthropology), this is a great place to visit. You should probably bring a notebook as there is a lot of information there. What’s even better is that they have models for you to see for the evolution of man over time, so it’s not just reading words. more

An anthropological museum 8/19/2005

The Museum of Man is a bit unusual insofar as it is an anthropological museum. So its exhibits are wide-ranging and usually very interesting -- delving into ancient and not-so-ancient civilizations and cultures. One exhibit I remember in particular was the gruesome one on torture devices. We saw it on a lark (for some reason we thought it would be amusing), but seeing all of the devices and reading the descriptions really made me ill and affected me profoundly. An ongoing permanent exhibit that I recall is "Footsteps Through Time" which shows you human evolution -- it isn't particularly compelling, I wish they would make it come to life a bit better. "Ancient Egypt" does a better job of this, although it could definitely use some more information about mummies! I love their new concept of "Tower after Hours." Basically they adopt a country or culture for the evening, and bring it to life with food, drink, dance and music. I believe it takes place on Thursday nights, so you can treat it like a really hip, culturally aware happy hour. more
