First Friday at the Natural History Museum, June 7, 2013

I've been wanting to go to the Natural History Museum for awhile and what would be more fun than going with a group of photographers. There are other museums and attractions in that area. We will meet at the NHM entrance on the SOUTH LAWN. Here is the website for the map of the museum. http://www.nhm.org/site/plan-your-visit/directions-parking .

Here is the main website for the museum - http://www.nhm.org/site/ From here you can find all the information you need about the Natural History Museum.

In that area there are also other museums - the rose garden, the CA Science Center (CSC), the African-American Museum, the LA Memorial Coliseum, and USC is across the street if you want to do some street shots.

I am putting the time of the meetup at 1:30, since I've heard that's better for visiting the museum on First Friday, as the crowds may be less in the afternoon.

I might also visit the museum on June 4th, Free Day, but I'm not hosting that event. I have a doctor's appointment that day, so I'm not sure what time I'll be going to the museum.

    Sorry to hear you couldn't make it - hope you are feeling better.
    I got stuck in traffic and missed meeting up with the group but totally enjoyed the afternoon once I got there - photographing the butterflies, dinosaurs, and the Space Shuttle (free and no line, no crowds!)
    Thanks again,
    E.

      Eileen, I'm so glad you had a great time. That's why I like going to and planning meetups during the week. I look forward to your photos from the museum. I'm getting something that will possibly help one of the health issues next week - compression stockings.
      Which, if anything will help me to walk better, with a bit less pain. I also hope to meet you at a future meetup. Maybe you can make it to the Free Day at the Arboretum?

    It'll be exciting to see the Endeavor!

      I'm going to do my best to be there, but I'll also have to see how much energy I have and how long I'll stay. I might have to see the Endeavor another time. We might also see the Butterfly Pavilion. Let's decide what to see when we meet. How's that?

      Beverly, Chris will be planning a meetup to the NHM on a weekend. I'm just not a fan of weekend crowds and don't work right now, so I like going during the week.

    I have had to cancel one meetup and possibly the other I was hosting for health reasons. I will keep this one, since it's a short meetup and close to my home, in case I need to leave early. ~Michelle~

    For everyone wanting to go to the NHM, don't despair. Chris is planning a meetup here, but doesn't have a date when it will happen. I just don't like going on weekends, so I wanted to plan a meetup during the week when it's less crowded.

      meniere's syndrome? I have a sister who is dealing with it,,

      I don't know. I'm with Kaiser now and my pcp is sending me for all kinds of diagnostics to figure what's causing it. He suggested cutting down on one of my meds. I did, and it helped. It's still not completely gone - but compared to what I was feeling, I'm much better. I do have hearing defects in both ears. Plus he's also sending me for opthamology & optometry exams. My cholesterol is also way too high...so it could be a combination of factors. Thanks...

    For everyone wondering if I would be well enough so I didn't have to cancel this meetup - I'm feeling better and will be able to host it. YAY!

    Darn. Yet another day when work gets in my way... :)

    • Michelle

      Don't worry Barbara. Chris is planning a weekend meetup to the NHM. He just doesn't have a day picked out. I've just been wanting to go, so I decided to plan a meetup there for anyone who can make it. Right now I don't work...and it's no vacation. :-| I really want to be working, but there are certain things that must be done before I can do that.
