NC Museum of Natural Sciences

Matthew and I attended the Raleigh A. S. Spring Workshop in February, and while we were there we were treated to a before-hours access tour to the NC Museum of Natural Sciences by Eric Hanneman, one of the museum curators and a long-time friend.  The museum is really well done, and the live displays are some of the best native USA fish aquariums you will see anywhere (props to Eric!!!).  North Carolina has one of the most diverse assemblages of freshwater fish, amphibians and reptiles in the temperate world… and this museum is dedicated to them!  Native fish enthusiasts really need to make a trip to Raleigh just to see the Piedmont stream aquarium… that tank alone is worth the price of admission!  Enjoy…
