I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Carnegie Hall Tour and The Rose Museum at Carnegie Hall

We were given a free tour of Carnegie Hall for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience.

What: Carnegie Hall Tour

Where: 881 7th Ave.
             New York, NY

When: Monday through Friday 11:30 AM, 12:30 AM, 2:00 PM, 3:00 PM
            Saturday 11:30 AM & 12:30 PM
            Sunday 12:30 PM

Who: Teens and above
Mom's view: If practice isn't going to get you to Carnegie Hall, why not just go and take a tour? Carnegie Hall is one of the most well-known concert venues in the world. On the tour, you will learn everything you could every want to know about this famous venue and more. You will learn about the history of Carnegie Hall. You will learn about what makes the sound so good here. You will learn about some of the famous people who played the venue. If you are interested in finding out about those who have played the venue, you will particularly enjoy viewing all the signed pictures located on the walls throughout the Hall. If you have any interest in history, architecture or entertainment, you will find this tour interesting and informative. While the tour is open to all ages, it is probably not a tour that young children would enjoy as they who would probably be bored. The Tour ends in the Rose Museum. The Rose Museum is a free museum located within Carnegie Hall for more about that see below.
What: The Rose Museum at Carnegie Hall

Where: 154 W. 57th Street
             New York, NY

When: M-F 11:00 AM - 4:30 PM
            (also open at night to Stern Auditorium and Perelman Stage concert patrons)

Who: All ages
Mom's view: The Rose Museum is a free museum located within Carnegie Hall. This museum contains many artifacts. Pictures. posters, tickets, musical instruments, album covers from some of the many albums that were recorded at Carnegie Hall are just some of the historic items that can be found here. There are also some more unusual items including a Beatles program with Paul McCartney's name wrong, a Peanuts cartoon, and even the spade used to lay the cornerstone of the building.  No matter what kind of music you are into classic, rock, Broadway show tunes, you will find something of interest here. If you are a history buff, a music buff or an entertainment buff, you will particularly enjoy this museum.
And that's Mom's view. Tune in tomorrow for another Talking Topic.
