Skirball Center — Check!

Oh, you guys!  Noah’s Ark at the Skirball Center is simply the most amazing thing ever.  A must-see mix of interactive kid museum meets Burning Man meets Swiss Family Robinson meets DIY Reduce Reuse Recycle heaven meets indoor playground meets activity and art party meets baby drum circle meets a Bible story you read years ago.

The pure fun of Noah’s Ark was exquisitely balanced against the simultaneously heavy and ethereal ‘Women Hold Up Half The Sky’ exhibit.  It’s a visual and emotional journey based on the book,  Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.  I didn’t leave with dry eyes and I sure wasn’t the only one.  A participatory exhibit that made me open and think and feel and exit ever so grateful for the life I’m living.
