Tellus Museum

Last Sunday, we had planned to take Riley to see Race to Witch Mountain, but found something to do that would be way more fun...the Tellus Museum in Cartersville, GA. All we had to say was "dinosaur bones" and she was halfway out the door!

The museum has only been open since January--in fact, many exhibits were still under construction. We saw lots of cool skeletal casts and tons of gems, stones and geodes.

We also had the chance to pan for gems and dig for fossils in another part of the museum.

We left the museum and took a short drive to visit an old covered bridge.
