    For this assignment I visited the Hall of Mammals on a crowded Saturday over Labor Day weekend. The hoards of people trying to move through the rooms really emphasized how unintuitive the flow of the exhibit is. As I thought back to the times I’ve...

    It’s been a while since my last visit to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM), so I decided to come back for a visit to their year-old temporary exhibition "State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda." This exhibition balances...
