Wanna Live at a Museum?

July 31, 2010

Then go check this website. The Chicago Museum of Science and Industry is looking for someone who is willing to live at the museum – 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from October 20 – November 18 of this year.

If you get chosen, and you stick it out, you get $10,000. And all the cyber stuff they’ll let you use during that month to make videos, blog about your experience, etc.

You only get to leave to go on field trips, you have to be willing to give public talks, and you spend part of your time in a glassed in room where you are actually an exhibit. You have free run of the museum 24 hours a day, to see the exhibits, etc.

It’s a once in a lifetime experience and I’m thinking about entering. The museum will read essays, watch the videos of those who entered and then narrow the choices down to three. The public will choose one.

Seriously, how many opportunities are there to be a museum exhibit, while you’re still living and breathing? I’m thinking ‘Night at the Museum’ x 30!

They have to pick someone! Hurry – applications close August 11.

P.S. Happy Birthday, Sweet Janae. Enjoy the last of your 20’s!

    I’d LOVE to do this. But I don’t think the timing is right for me. How ’bout I vote for you?!?!

      Becky, I think my daughter, Leslie (FunMom) is going to apply so maybe we can vote for her. She has a teaching background and loves to play, so she would be the perfect person for it!
