How did the exhibit capture your attention? What did you learn about the natural world from the exhibit that you might not have understood through another medium? What is it about your experience at the museum that you found to be so enjoyable? The exhibit caught my attention with all the different butterflies displayed on the walls. I mean as a kid we learned about the life cycle but the cool thing I never knew was butterflies like banana's.

How does the Natural History museum help us step out of our ordinary lives? How does it help us better understand who we are and better appreciate the mystery and majesty of the natural world? This Natural History museum allowed me to set anything in life that was bothering me to the side and take in the natural beauty of nature. It helped me better understand that sometimes in life you have to just drop what you are doing and breathe. Nothing in life will go on without you because you are life, and you are the only one that can make your life good.
