Museum is Home for a Month for Chicago Woman, by Shelby Lin Erdman, CNN

- Kate McGroarty won a promotion contest to spend a month in a museum
- She's in her second week at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry
- McGroarty has developed a fan following on Twitter and among visitors to the museum
- "I've always loved this museum, and I've always loved adventure," she says.
I saw the article in CNN and had to re-post it! Can you imagine staying a museum for a month?! Where was I when the contest was announced!?
One of my favorite books of all times, From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler had a brother and sister duo solving a mystery at a museum. So what if it is a 3rd grade level book - if you are an adult who missed the 1980s, go find this book and read it. A true adventure in a museum...with art lessons included.
I wonder if Ms. McGroarty has any mysteries to solve?!
What museum would you want to stay in for a month? What would you do first there? What would you do last? Would you want a mystery to solve?
PS: Happy Halloween!
