Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover: we guided you through our seven-day trip through Ohio, upstate New York, and Pennsylvania in fifty episodes —- July 7-13, 2018, with stops along the way at nine museums or museum-like historical structures. Here in our penultimate chapter we present a selection of additional exhibits from those museums. Their fascinating exhibits could’ve kept us going for several more chapters albeit with increasingly diminishing returns. I tried to be choosy when curating the previous chapters, so the following gallery represents the honorable mentions, some of which were perhaps unfairly cut. Enjoy!
First up: a bonus round of paintings from Utica’s Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute, whose chapter was the most-Liked among our WordPress readers.
Near the end of our trip was the Heinz History Museum, featuring a wealth of artifacts from throughout Pittsburgh history.
Days earlier we’d kicked off our week with a visit to the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library and Museums at Spiegel Grove, or the ol’ RBHPLMSP for short.
For extra credit, a pair of one-offs from other locales steeped in history and government.
To be concluded!
