Lucy’s skeleton is on tour, and is currently on display at the Pacific Science Center — a lovely and interesting place even when the most famous australopithecine in the world isn’t holding court. Here’s the surprising news: Pacific northwesterners are not flocking to the museum. The science center is losing big buckets of money on the exhibit, and other museums around the country are hesitating about booking it — it may close after its Seattle run, and I won’t get to see it!
I can’t believe this. You have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a wonderful relic of our ancient history, and you’re staying home?
You still have time. It closes on 8 March. Go!
