There are several events that are held at the Museum & on this day, there was a big 'Tractor Show' where several Tractors were on display. Am not such a big fan of machines & locomotives but Hubby & my son were in heaven to see all the tractors. The museum is...

The Ark's interior...

Who would have thought that attending an Exhibition all about 'Sneakers' would be so interesting. I am not exactly a 'Sneaker/Sport shoes Fan' even though i have to admit that they are the most comfortable shoes ever made. But walking through the Exhibition & reading all about the history & development of this 'Kult' in the last years was really impressive.

She had told me that they were having an Exhibition about African Masks which kids found very interesting.
