Congressional visit

Congressman-elect Tom Perriello (VA-5th district, which includes Martinsville) visited VMNH this morning for a whirlwind tour of our exhibits and educational facilities. While we didn’t have time to go to the main collections areas, we did get to take a look at the Boxley stromatolite that will be going on public display early in 2009. We also spent a fair amount of time looking at the skeletons and exhibit labs, as well as in the Uncovering Virginia hall, where the congressman spent some time looking at the Carmel Church interactive (I’m pleased to report that our exhibits are so engaging that they were what put us behind schedule.) Here’s the official VMNH page about the visit.
