Having grown up in the midwest we are always proud to share many of the regions undiscovered treasures. On today's show, World Footprints will explore two state capitols--Indianapolis, Indiana and Lansing, Michigan (Tonya's hometown).
Indianapolis is home to the world's largest and the fourth oldest children's museum. Kim Harm from the museum will take us on a tour and share how a children's museum can change a child's life in unimaginable ways. She will also talk about some of their exciting international exhibits, including China's Terra Cotta Warriors.
From its opening in 1879, the Michigan State Capitol Building has served as the gateway to the Mid-Michigan region. Bolding standing in the heart of Lansing--Michigan's capitol city--the Capitol Building draws more than 100,000 visitors annually. This beautiful landmark is one of only 13 Capitol buildings nationwide--including the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC--that have been designated as a National Historic Landmark. We will tour the Capitol Building and hear stories of this remarkable historic structure with the Michigan Capitol's chief story teller, Matt Van Acker.
