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 - Italian American Museum

What: Italian American Museum

Where: 155 Mulberry St.
             New York, NY

Who: Ages 5 and Up

Me & Mom - New York  City like many other cities has an Italian American Museum. The Italian American Museum in New York is a little museum devoted to Italian American history and Italian Americans' contributions to American history. The museum is not very big, but there are quite a lot of things to see. When you get there, there is a film which gives you a history of the museum. The museum includes objects that people would use in their every day life or their job like clothes, and a sewing machine. There are also objects related to famous Italian America's like pictures of Joe Di Maggio, Mario Lanza recordings and sheet music, and objects related to Frank Serpico, a former police officer known for blowing a whistle on police corruption in the late 1960s and early 1970s. There was also a shovel that was used to break ground for building the first New York City subway. The building used to be a bank so there was a bank vault and objects related to the bank including old Italian money. There is also a second room in the museum that has changing art exhibits. The museum is not a bad place to take children because it is not that big, and there are some  objects that children might enjoy viewing like  a musical instrument, an organ grinding machine and/or pictures of famous baseball players. All in all, it is a really cute little museum that is quick to go through. There is no set fee for visiting the museum, a donation in the amount of your choosing is requested to help cover the costs of running the museum.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
