Roadtripping to National Museums-- Part 1

From the April 7-13 American Profile Magazine "National Museums: Chronicling the American Experience" by Marti Attoun.

Perhaps a good list of places to check out on your travels (well, if you can affort our super-expensive gasoline here in the Midwest.

"Thousands of museums dot the United States-- chronicling, conserving and commemorating the nation's artistic, cultural, historical and scientific legacy.  Here are 10 museums that provide a glimpse into the American experience."

Looking at the list, I haven't been to ANY of them.  I must be Un-American.

NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL CENTER AND HALL OF FAME--  BONNER SPRINGS, KANSAS

Such items as a walking plow used by President Harry S. Truman, the first Future Farmers of America uniform and a 1919 Waterloo Boy N, considered the original two-cylinder John Deere tractor. (I have a John Deere yard tractor for my agricultural, well, grass cutting needs.)

The 150-acre complex also has the National Poultry Museum, a blacksmit shop, general store and restored farmhouse.  It's all about the story of America's farming heritage.
