National Gallery Of Art Issue Date: 12-28-1997

Cool Spots imageEverybody quiet! Line up for the museum tour. But on this field trip you make the rules. Explore art in your own way at the National Gallery of Art online at www.nga.gov.

Or maybe you want to head straight for the Renaissance room to see those famous Italian painters. (Browse by historical period.)

The Field Museum Issue Date: 02-09-1997

Cool Spots imageHave you ever wanted to walk among the dinosaurs or go digging for the artifacts of early human cultures in Amazon caves? At the Field Museum On-line, you can do exactly that and more. Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History hosts exhibits, pictures, movies and games for the explorer in all of us. Go for a run with a saber-toothed cat, feed the camels, or slum around with a giant sloth! If jungle rock is your thing, you can even listen to mammoth bone music! Take your outback gear to www.fieldmuseum.org and trek out on your own adventure. Don't forget to pack some snacks for the dinosaurs or maybe you will become a dinosaur snack yourself.

Beam Me Back to the Stone Age, Scotty Issue Date: 12-29-1996

Cool Spots imageWith a click of the mouse, you can send yourself to http://museums.ncl.ac.uk/flint/menu.html and head back to the Stone Age. Take the timeline link and read a scroll of Stone Age accomplishments to find how far back in history you've gone. Then imagine a time when large ice sheets covered the land and the sea. In order to survive, you had to hunt for game and gather fruits and berries along with the herds of animals your tribe followed. Do you think you would make a good gatherer of food? Which berries or mushrooms taste good and are nutritious? Beware, some of them are not safe to eat. Staying alive takes more wit than simply digging through the refrigerator for a snack. This site clubs the myth that Stone Age people were the dim-witted, hairy brutes we have been lead to believe.
