Carnegie Museum of Art and History

Yesterday we picked up our Cultural Passes – there are 37 free activities to do in the city during the summer.  This morning I dropped Lizzy off at the church at 7:30AM for camp, then Alex at summer school, then the little girls at their summer program.  Jessi, Sammi, Ellie, and I then headed for the museum.

It was originally a Carnegie library – it is a beautiful Neoclassical building!


We thought the current exhibit was….interesting, but we loved this painting of New Albany by Morrison.


They have a fabulous permanent exhibit on the Underground Railroad.  Sammi LOVED that!

Loved this quote!

…if we would have God’s favor with us as a nation we must be right.  To be right we must do right.  Right does not depend on color  God is no respecter of persons or races.  he has made all of one blood, and he seeks the good of all and we must seek the good of all within our province.


Outside we saw this great relief and quote on the building’s side:

Books are the precious life blood of master spirits embalmed and treasured up to a life beyond life.


Afterwards we were hungry and I decided we would just walk around down town and find some place to eat.  We stumbled upon The New Albany Brewing Company.  Jessi and Sammi thought I was walking straight into Hell!  Smile  They were so cute!  They serve food here too!  They had the best hamburger they have ever had there.
