Bean Life Science Museum Blog

Hi everyone -
We've decided to start a blog for the Bean Life Science Museum. This will be a forum for our patrons to read about the events and exhibits going on at the Museum in a less formal, candid format. People will also have the opportunity to post their thoughts and comments about our events and exhibits.
