Cremation, embalming, mummification, burial, hearse wagons and motor vehicles. Presidents, Hollywood stars, The Pope, Day of The Dead, and many other historical descriptions and displays of last rites and burial. There is so much to learn and see that two hours will just get you a nice walk around and coverage of the building. If you really want to read and learn you can spend a couple of days at the museum. It is a wonderful museum regarding all things dead and the history behind what we do today. I must say my favorite part was the tribute to George Barris the King Of Custom cars and the original Batmobile. I highly recommend it! Here are a few of the 192 photos I took at the museum.

Do you ever wonder about the history of your city or a city you visit? How about advances in security and technology? The Houston Police Museum covers many of these topics and it is absolutely free. If you are traveling through Houston or if you live in the surrounding area I highly recommend this museum. Thank you to the men and women who protect us everyday. Here is just a tiny bit of what I saw at the museum.

For it to fly they must work

Here is a photo I took of the Lorraine Motel which is now a part of the National Civil Rights Museum.  The Lorraine Motel at 450 Mulberry Street Memphis, Tennessee is where Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968.

Remembering Troops.

Who are gone while we are free.

Never forgotten.

There are many views and photos of The Alamo, but this one I took is a rarity. Nobody every thinks to look between the trees and shoot from the side.
