The Houston Bicycle Museum is a really great place to view racing bikes, BMX bikes, recumbent bikes, historical bikes, lowrider bikes, art bikes, etc. Interestingly, I just learned of their imminent closure until they find a new space. New spots for the museum have rent costs three times more expensive which could pose problems. They have to leave their current site by October 18, 2018 due to a parking lot expansion for the Holocaust Museum. I really hope they find funding and a new location because the history behind bikes is really amazing. If I were a billionaire, I would give them a million A.S.A.P., but sigh, I am not. For more information visit their website here http://www.houstonbicyclemuseum.org/

Here are a few photos from my visit and some of my favorite bikes. A chopper, a wooden one, an artsy one, a Asian style one, a musical one, a lowrider one, Lance Armstrong and Tour de France, and a room view.

Presidential museums are some of the most amazing places to visit to learn about American history. The George Bush Museum in College Station, Texas is no exception. There are halls and halls of exhibits to make learning American history enjoyable. Whether you love or hate Mr. Bush, I suggest a visit because the amount of information, and eye-opening experience is phenomenal. Anyone who thinks it is easy to be a president will soon think otherwise after a visit.

Here are a few photos I took at the museum. I hope they inspire you to visit and learn more about American history and take your own photos.

Having a hobby as a musician, I am often privileged to special parties and events. A few years back, I took several photos at the Lone Star Flight Museum http://www.lsfm.org/index.html  in Galveston, Texas while playing for the U.S.S. Texas Submarine Commissioning party for the United States Navy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Texas_%28SSN-775%29

The museum has a great collection of vintage war planes. If you want to do a draw down on your wallet, they also offer plane rides in a few selected aircraft.

So if you’re in Galveston, Texas, make a trip over to the museum, and learn a little about the history of flight.

Here are a few photos from the museum.

I took this photo around the museum district in Houston. I am always amazed at how beautiful women are even in statue form.
