May is Minnesota Museum Month

Did you know that May in Minnesota Museum Month?

Minnesota Museum MonthI have just finished making a huge list of museums that Anne, Joy, and I should review for you over the coming years.

I say years because even if we each visited one a month, it would be years before the task was completed and by the time we would just about be finished, there would be new museums to discover.

And I think that’s fantastic because that means in Minneapolis and St. Paul and the surrounding suburbs, there is so much culture we will never stop learning.  And growing. And appreciating who we are and what we have.

May 2018 update: It has been several years since this article was published and we have continued exploring as promised. Check out our Museums & Historic Sites page to get the most recent information on all of these museums and more.

‘The Lorax’ at Children’s Theatre Co 5 Things to Know

The Lorax, a classic Dr. Seuss story, introduces our responsibility to the environment. In its usual exciting Children’s Theatre Co. fashion, we are transported into the colorful world of Truffula Trees, Brown Bar-ba-loots, Swomee Swans, and Humming Fish.  Giant puppets, a dazzling set, eye-popping costumes and props, lively music, and Seusstastical rhyme all convey the message of The Lorax.

FFTC was gifted a pair of tickets by CTC
to review the show. All opinions are my own

‘The Land of Yangalele’ by Papa Siama and Auntie Dallas

Traveling the world is not a possibility for many young families.  So how can we introduce different cultures to our kids and to ourselves?  One way is by music.   Travel to the Democratic Republic of Congo listening to Papa Siama and Auntie Dallas’s new album, “The Land of Yangalele.”
