In a word: Awesome!
But since a one word blog wouldn't be all that exciting (though I could see there might be some appeal to those who read all my words)...I'll continue.

I walked to the museum from the Convention Center in a bit of a round about way, but it did allow me to check out some beautiful city architecture.

I thought this was the US Mint when I walked by but when I got home and looked on a map it turns out the Mint was behind this building which is the "City and County Building" (whatever that actually is.)
I wish I had more time at the museum because 2 1/2 hours really isn't near enough time to even get a feel for the place, but it did give me a good overview of the two buildings that are attached to each other. You could probably call it a speed viewing, but I did enjoy some beautiful art.

I toured "Read My Pins: the Madeleine Albright Collection" - I'd not realized her thoughts behind the pins she chose, but now that I've seen the exhibit I'm impressed and the next time I see a photo of her from when she was U.S. Secretary of State I'll take a look to see if I can recognize her pin.
This was probably 3 feet tall and I so badly wanted to reach out and touch it, something about it called to me
You KNOW I couldn't pass up a horse. I'd love to have him in my yard.
The color is breathtaking
Eventually I had to head back to the hotel to get my luggage and hop a ride to the airport. I said goodbye to the Blue Bear who spent his (her?) time peering inside the Convention Center. (I walked under his legs each morning.)
