Shin-Yokohama Raumen Museum, Yokohama, Japan

I posted about the Cup Noodle Museum earlier. Shin Yokohama Raumen Museum is also worth going to. You don’t get to make any ramen here, but you get to try 9 different ramen shops if you can handle it. It’s more like a food themed amusement park in a 1958 scene. It looked like a…

Cup Noodles Museum, Yokohama, Japan

Two attractions you cannot miss in Yokohama is the Cup Noodles Museum and the Shin Yokohama Raumen Museum which will be discussed in a separate post. At the Cup Noodles Museum, you can experience making your own cup noodles to bring home. The museum displays the history of all the instant noodles ever made! Momofuku…

Asian Art Museum, Seattle

Did you know that if you go to Seattle Art Museum, the same ticket can be used for admission at the Asian Art Museum at Volunteer Park, Capitol Hill. I didn’t get a chance to see the current exhibit at Asian Art but did go to Seattle Art Museum which I wrote about in an…

Volunteer Park Conservatory, Seattle

I stumbled upon this place on Capitol Hill after I went to the Asian Art Museum. If you love plants and flowers, you must visit. It’s a very serene place to spend an hour and for nature photographers, you might get some really good photos in here. Inside the glass houses, there are thousands of…

EMP Museum, Hello Kitty, Seattle

You still have a couple weeks if you haven’t been to the Hello Kitty exhibit yet. It’s worth the 3 hour drive for me since I am a fan and an addict. I collect the Re-ment miniature toys and have various Hello Kitty items. For the fans out there, I will share SOME photos with…

Seattle Art Museum

If you haven’t gone yet, Kehinde Wiley’s exhibit is closing soon. I learned that his portraits discuss the statement of power especially the image of the men on horses which symbolizes power. (I listened in on an art history class teacher discussing the artist.) Here are just a few images.         The rest…

Cabrillo National Monument, Point Loma, San Diego

   We drove to the Cabrillo National Monument lookout point to get these shots. It is the only National Park in San Diego. Don’t make a mistake and drive into the Naval Base like what we did. Luckily, they just asked a few questions and let us turn our car around! It got confusing when…

The Museum at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), New York

I went to an exhibit at the Museum of FIT called The Women of Harper’s Bazaar, 1936-1958 which focused on editor-in-chief Carmel Snow, fashion editor Diana Vreeland, and photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe.  Here are a few photos of the garments and photographs donated by Louise. I hope you had a chance to see the exhibit if…

Museum of Mathemathics, New York

We love museums. We try to go to as many museums as we can when we travel. One of the museums on our list in New York was the Museum of Mathematics. I was never good at math and it might not be my strongest subject. The reason I went was because we don’t have…

Vancouver Art Gallery

We have a membership to the Vancouver Art Gallery and recently we went to see the current exhibit Mashup.

The regular admission is $24 adults, $18 seniors, $18 students with ID, $6.50 for age 5-12 (please refer…
