Lately I’ve been attending a lot of interesting events, visiting museums and trying to get a taste of culture here in Caracas. Caracas has a lot of wonderful things to offer, from it’s very own Municipal Orchestra (Orquesta Sinfonica Municipal de Caracas), to the more renowned Venezuelan Symphony Orchestra (Orquesta Sinfonica de Venezuela), to the wonderful museums such as the Fine Arts Museum and the National Art Gallery (Museo de Bellas Artes y Galeria de Arte Nacional)–there is very little that Caracas has to envy other metropolitan cities when it comes to culture.
A couple of Saturdays ago I went to visit to museums with the two little girls pictured at left. They are neighbors of mine and like family so we planned on visiting the Museo de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Museum) and the Museo de Ciencias (Museum of Science and Natural History). We set out, toting water bottles, snacks and my camera, off to have a great adventure in the museum sector. First we tackled the Science Museum and saw so many animals that we were beside ourselves! The museum has a few interactive exhibits which the girls enjoyed very much. Let me share some of those photos with you here:
The girls had a blast and I am hoping that some time soon we can go to a few other places and museums. This weekend we will be attending the ballet’s presentation of Carmen at the Teresa Carreño theatre. The girls and I are all super excited! I am just trying to figure out what to wear…LOL! I think I may have the perfect outfit, though! I would love to share all of the photos I have taken of cultural events here on this blog with you but there are just too many! Do please visit my photography page on facebook: Perez Liscano Photography for more photos from the outing with the girls. There are some wonderful photos from the Fine Arts Museum and other events on there, the album is called Arts and Culture Caracas. Please click on the link and visit it! Comments are welcome!
