Transportation History Displays At The MAC. Who Wants To Go?

I saw this ad in The Inlander and thought it might be cool for transportation buffs like @Charles Hansen who have a lot of insight into local transportation history.

Click the ad to view it full size and you'll see that the Carriage House at the Campbell House, which is part of the Museum of Arts and Culture for those who didn't know, now has a transportation theme. I think it would be interesting to check out the 'carriage to autombile' and 'worldwide travel at the turn of the 20th century' displays.

Now, just have to get the boss to let me do it on work time. Or there's always the weekend right?

Yes they have a computer kiosk with the transition from the carriage to electric car to gas cars. I have seen the carriage and electric car before but not the computer kiosk yet.

I figured you'd be all over it @Charles. I need to get out for a 'field trip.'
