Extraordinary Exhibits at Columbus Museum

(Still working on the biggie; meanwhile, a quickie on Columbus Museum.)

Checking out what’s new  at the Columbus Museum proved a good use of time Sunday.

Not only did I find the Midtown Columbus exhibit especially interesting because the first nine years of my life were spent in East Wynnton, but I was dazzled by the blown glass exhibit on the third floor.

The Midtown exhibit shows post cards of Victorian homes and places like Weracoba Park, popularly known as Lake Bottom, when there was actually a lake with a bath house, bridges, and row boats there. It was drained in 1925. There are also artifacts like furniture and china that date back to the Civil War.  Trust me, it’s worth a visit, especially if you grew up in Columbus.

Whatever you do, though, make sure you go up to the third floor.  You won’t believe what glass blowers can do.  Go when you have plenty of time.  It’s not something you want to do hurriedly.
