|Amelia Earhart's Birthplace Museum|
Yep, there are two greyhound statues outside the home.
When they entered the house, Mama asked if there was connection between Amelia and greyhounds. Apparently, there is not. :-( It appears that someone just donated them to the house.
The folks paid their $5 for the tour. The price has gone up from the price on the website that Mama posted above. The tour guide gave them a sheet of paper describing the house and sent them on their way for the self-guided tour. Dad said for $5, she could have given them a tour. BOL!
The house actually belonged to Amelia's grandparents. It is the house where she was born and lived until she was about nine. Her father lived in Kansas City, but traveled a lot, so she lived there with her mother and sister.
|The dining room is filled with items from movies telling the story of Amelia.|
|The clothing was worn by Hilary Swank.|
Mama said there was way too much to see in the museum. There was a lot to read. It was interesting. She would have liked it more if Amelia was a fan of greyhounds. BOL!
