After reading not_on_display's genius post about the Museum of Jurassic Technology, I realized it's been too long since I've been. Time for a meetup! [more inside]
The Brooklyn Museum is free, and has special events, on Saturday evenings from 5-10 pm. Let's meet see some of the museum and events and have a drink. [more inside]
Let's go to Watts Towers! The Watts Towers structure consists of seventeen major sculptures of steel, covered with mortar and embellished by decorative finishings of mosaic tiles, glass, clay, shells, and rock. This folk art employs assemblage construction. There are three tall spires, several small towers, two walls, gazebo, patio, ship, and other structures. In addition to the towers, the The Watts Towers Arts Center is the home of International Ethnic Instrument Collection consisting of 144 primarily non-western instruments collected from around the world.

After having so much fun at the recent Spaceship Endeavour! meetup, I thought I'd propose a similar venture to one of our grand LA art museums,
choice and date TBD. UPDATE 5/4: It looks as if LACMA on June 1st will work out well for most. [more inside]
It's cold and snowy and I have super-duper Carnegie Museum passes for another month. Does anyone want to meet up and look at some art and/or science? [more inside]
The Ivy Style Exhibition at the Museum At FIT is a wonderful collection of WASP-y, prep looks and oddities throughout the decades. Friday at 6pm. Refreshments to follow. [more inside]
Kattullus and myself both happen to be in London for the weekend. There's already a full-packed Saturday plan, but for those who can't make it or know they won't be able to get enough MeFites IRL, come join us on Friday! We are planning on meeting outside the Wellcome Collection at 1pm, to check out the Superhuman exhibit. Food and drink will likely happen afterwards. [more inside]
Hey, Metafilter! Are you in or around London? Do you like looking at things preserved in jars? Have I got a meetup for you... [more inside]
Any MeFite Museum folk planning to be in Houston for the AAM convention in May? And if so, any interest in trying to set up a meetup?
Anyone interested in seeing the Will Eisner New York exhibition at MoCCA? After some discussion, I figured Saturday, April 16 might be an auspicious date. I've been to the space before, and though the place isn't huge, this one looks fun. It's $5. Could do lunch before in Chinatown/SoHo also or just meet up at museum at 2:30.
