GTGL Snippets: Family Night at the Museum for the Terracotta Warriors Exhibition

Ten of the terracotta warriors were on display in Philadelphia for the first time in 30 years at The Franklin Institute. Philly is one of only two cities in the United States to host what is called the Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor exhibition, the other city being Seattle. Naturally, we had to see it as it is definitely one of those family outings that we don't want to let pass. Who knows when these archeological gems will be near us again?!
