Jefferson City, Missouri
Our exploring began today at the Veterinary Museum. We didn't know what to expect but it was nearby, free and intriguing. This is reported to be the only one of its kind in the United States.
It was much better than what we anticipated. The receptionist turned on a short video for us to watch and left us alone to explore the museum.
This bit is how they gave medication to a horse.
How do you like this stomach pump?
There were over 3,500 artifacts.
I had forgotten about the K-9 dogs for the World War's training in Fort Robinson near Crawford. We visited there, but now it puts the pieces all together.
There were letters from children who donated their pets for the war effort. Would you have donated yours?
That's a strange looking filter.
Our next stop for the day was the state capitol. We were about a half hour early for the tour so we toured the state museum on the main floor.
This is a reproduction of the USS Missouri.
There was a history section and a commerce section of the musuem.
I'm not into music but I thought this 1904 zither was beautiful and it took two years to craft.
Our capitol tour began with the state seal.
I just couldn't capture the beauty of this stained glass in a photo.
The Governor's Mansion and Jefferson Landing are not open on Monday's. We haven't decided if we are going to stay another day. The weather report is calling for rain so I guess we'll just wait and see.
