Oriental Institute Museum

I had a chance to visit the Oriental Institute Museum a few weeks back when Alisha was in town and was quite impressed. Although it seemed, and I suppose I assumed the museum space was not very big, the actual museum was quite large. They had artifacts from close to a dozen ancient civilizations and even had a small piece of the Dead Sea Scrolls! There were gorgeous statues, jewelry, facades and they had reconstructed a small (yet very overwhelming) portion of a temple inside the museum. It was just awe inspiring. Definitely check out this free (with suggested donation) museum and be impressed! IMG_8675.JPG
