    Hi folks for the Arctic. I will be there at the Ticket office with a meetup sign from 1:40 - 1:55 pm tomorrow. Please try to get to Museum at least during that time so we can sit together. After the talk and Q&A, we can view both the National History Museum (minerals, glass flowers, dinosaurs) and attached Peabody Museum (North American Indians) with a single ticket. If your time allows, we may walk around the museum together (or small groups/individually) for about one hour. They have pretty interesting stuff. See you there.
