Over the weekend, my girlfriend and I decided to take my daughter on a trip to the Grand Rapids Public MuseumThe Real Pirates exhibit is there and will be leaving on April 18th.

Having arrived at the museum, I didn't know that the museum was so big. So many different exhibits throughout made for an unexpected surprise and worth the drive. A full size whale skeleton suspended from the ceiling and lots of historic Michigan items as well.

The exhibit sets sail on April 18th. Make sure to you head to GR for a look into some great history of all kinds.
