Coolest contest EVER
Did you read the book From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler as a kid? It's about a girl who runs away from home with her brother and goes to live in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It's a wonderful book, I read it about 30 times, and ever since then I have fantasized about living in a museum.
Well, now is my chance (and yours) because the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago is having a contest to find some incredibly lucky someone to live in the museum for a month. That's 24-7, eating, sleeping, bathing (I wonder about that last one) in the amazing Museum of Science and Industry for one whole month!!!
Did I mention that they have a giant incubator of hatching eggs and baby chicks? Or the Apollo 8 spaceship? No? Well, they do.
Could only be awesomer if it was The Met, just like in the book.
