NEMA Conference — pat morss

I’m back from the annual New England Museum Association Conference that was held “live” this year in Springfield, MA. We are fortunate to benefit from such diversity and density of museums in New England, including here on Cape Ann. I ventured out to a few of them, walking and on field trips.

Home base was the Sheraton in downtown Springfield – Connecticut River view
The Basketball Hall of Fame is on the river a short walk away
Dr Seuss is well represented on the ‘Springfield Museums’ campus
Springfield’s past comes alive in the History Museum
Collections in two Art Museums span from Ancient cultures, through centuries …
… to Contemporary
Emily Dickinson’s house is on the Amherst College campus
This is the library where she wrote much of her poetry
Amherst’s Beneski Museum houses an extensive dinosaur and fossil collection
The New England Air Museum, across in Windsor Locks, CT, goes back to the Wright Brothers
And includes civilian and military aircraft, such as the WWII B-29 Superfortress
As well as supersonic fighters. This simulator is a real blast if you crash.
