Visiting the Disney Exhibit at MSI, and an Impromptu Lunch by the Lake

It’s been several years now, and there’s just a twinge of sadness each time I step foot into the museum. As amazing and awesome as the displays are, I do always find myself imagining the crowds having gone, and the lights dimming. I found myself looking around at various locations, wondering what it would be like to try to sleep at this exhibit, or over under this display.

Month at the Museum: Kate’s First Day

Check out some awesome photos of Kate’s first day of her Month at the Museum. Looks like they’ve redone the glass cube, and turned it more into an office. And it was neat to get a sneak peek into the private living quarters. You can follow Kate’s adventures in a variety of ways. She’s on Twitter (@msikate, she has a…

Exploring the Museum of Science and Industry

After the big press event for Month at the Museum concluded, like most of the other Finalists… I hung around the museum to explore a little. We each got a bag chock full of stuff (t-shirts, astronaut ice cream, gift certificates) and the thing was pretty heavy. So Liz and I decided to walk it out to the car, before…

Month at the Museum: Post-Contest Drinks at Villains

All of the Finalists yesterday made plans to meet up, later on in the evening. When asked to choose a location, I was at a bit of a loss. I’m not terribly familiar with the area where their hotel was, and most of the bars I know downtown… I don’t particularly like. But I found a place called Villains which…

Month at the Museum: Science Experiment Reveals Winner

The big day is finally here! After nearly two months, all five Finalists in the Month at the Museum contest met up for the first time at MSI, and got to hang out together as a group. We gathered near the front desk area, and holed up a while at some tables near the escalator. Krispijn was a little late…

Breakfast at MSI

I’m about to head out the door, and make my way to the Museum of Science and Industry. There’s a breakfast for all the Month at the Museum Finalists at 9AM, where we’ll get the chance to meet one another and… be nervous around one another for about an hour, I suppose. In all seriousness, I’m looking forward to it….

Meeting Krispijn

I’ve been talking with Krispijn Larrison, another Month at the Museum Finalist, over the past few days. We tried to get in touch with some of the other folks to arrange to meet the night prior to the big event. Alex couldn’t make it due to time constraints, and Kate was busy with a show she’s directing. Sadly, I wasn’t…

Last Day to Vote: Month at the Museum

That’s it! Today’s the last day for voting! I think the actual cutoff time is 5PM CST. After that, it’s all in the Museum’s hands. The winner will be announced on Wednesday, October 6th. Crazy to think that it’ll all be over, one way or another, in just a few days. All of the Finalists are gathering together at the…

Month at the Museum: What Were All Those Photos in My Video?

On my lunch break today, I decided to do a quick update. I’m getting a good number of new visitors to these parts (thanks to the Month at the Museum contest), and many folks might not have recognized certain screenshots from my museum video. So I thought a little recap was in order. First off, here’s my video again: 0:05…

I’m a Finalist for Month at the Museum!

I’M ONE OF THE 5 FINALISTS!!! WOO HOO!!! Ok. Whew. Just had to get that off my chest. I’ve been keeping all that bottled in for some time now. Ever since the SemiFinal round, I’ve had to keep a lid on things for a few weeks now. I’m finally, officially able to say something and I have to tell you……

Month at the Museum: MSI Thank You Video

The Museum of Science and Industry made a great “Thank You” video for all the participants in their Month at the Museum contest. I think it’s great that they made their own 60 second video (and it shows the MSI staff is just as creative as the applicants). There was also an update made yesterday, regarding the status of the…
