Cars, Planes, and Carousels

Most of the things left on our list of things to do while we're here in Ohio are outdoor activities. Saturday was rainy so our original plans were scrapped and we weren't sure what to do for our adventure. I did a quick search online to find an alternative plan and stumbled upon the Crawford Auto Aviation Exhibit at the Cleveland History Center on University Circle. University Circle is home to lots of museums so this outing made it our third trip there (we had even walked past the Cleveland History Museum before, but hadn't thought anything of it besides noticing the big glass windows showcasing a carousel). With Taylor being a fan of cars, we thought we would enjoy a quick walk though of the auto aviation exhibit, but it ended up being one of our favorite museums (it also ended up being the cheapest museum we've attended). 

The old cars and planes were just a small part of the museum. There was tons to see and a variety of exhibits. One of the cool things about the museum is that it was built on as an addition of two mansions. I love old buildings so I particularly enjoyed exploring these. Taylor's favorite part of it all (even more than the cars and airplanes) was the 107 year old carousel. Watching his big smile, excited shouts, and his enthusiastic wave at everyone as we spun around made this easily my favorite part of the museum as well.


Afterwards, we walked through the college campus of Case Western, which is made up of old buildings and churches, to get to the Jolly Scholar for delicious burgers.


With the 4th of July coming up and Andrew having an extra day and a half off, we will most likely be able to squeeze in one or two extra adventures this week. Which is good since we are almost out of time here in Ohio.
