This is a pretty neat museum, as self and The Man found out last weekend, when we took advantage of free admission for the Chinese New Year Festival in downtown Redwood City.
They have a new exhibit opening Mar. 13: “Plowing Ahead: Historic Peninsula Farming”
There is a room called the Charles Parsons Gallery that is full of the most amazing, intricate, hand-built ship models. Self can imagine how long it took to build each of these! Last summer, self visited the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and that museum had a few ship models. But this gallery in the San Mateo County Historical Museum had about 20, all built by the same San Carlos resident, Mr. Parsons. Sooo amazingly beautiful and definitely worth repeat viewing.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
