At the Mabee-Gerrer


This was our save-money-for-the-summer Spring Break.

I got home from Boston on Spring Break Monday. On Spring Break Tuesday, we applied for passports. On Spring Break Wednesday, we made a stop at Penn Square Mall in OK and after stopping for Wendy's Frosties on the way home, made our first family visit to the Mabee-Gerrer Museum at St. Gregory's University in Shawnee. We saw mummies, shrunken heads, cuneiform tablets, a painting by Tintoretto, and many other artifacts and works of art in their small, wide-ranging permanent collection. Afterwards, we spent some time in the campus labyrinth (photos below).
