Discovery Day At The CMNH

Here in the U.S. of A. it’s "Martin Luther King Day". It’s also the Cleveland Museum of Natural History’s annual “Discovery Day”. This means that all the curators, volunteers, & other staff take to the galleries to meet the public (free admission today!) and talk about what we do. That’s Dale, Gary, & David from the VP Dept. keeping the visitors entertained and informed (Joe & Delina were taking a break when this photo was snapped).
