  1. What a cool museum! That's funny that your kids didn't know what the organ was! I once went on a school field trip, with one of my sons, to the Franklin Institute. They had rotary-style phones set up in one room, where you could "talk" to famous people. When my son saw the phones, he asked, "What is that?" I really felt old that day! LOL!
