North to Alaska. At least Whitehorse, Yukon. We visited lots of museums. The tour of the paddle wheeler was great. The first class lounge was aA stark contrast to where the economy class passengers spent their time. They were not allowed on the upper decks.

A trip on the famous Whitepass Railway.
Museums to the south—Colorado: Lots of great museums. And Bents Old Fort. Did you notice the three dollar bill?
Last but not least—Hawaii. Yes, even in Hawaii I visit museums. Whaling and protestant missionaries made a big impact on the islands.

Do you visit museums? What is your favorite past of doing so and have you made a surprising discovery?
