In a friendly and entertaining style, America's Scientific Treasures describes hundreds of exciting destinations for the scientifically inclined traveler. The authors have spent many years traveling throughout the United States, and all of their suggestions are based on their own first-hand experience. The treasures they describe range from the unusual to the majestic, from the National Museum of Roller Skating to the Grand Canyon, and each has been selected for its high quality and educational merit. The book is organized geographically, spanning the forty-eight contiguous states, and the descriptions contain both travel details and lively background information. This guide will appeal in particular to armchair travelers, families looking for educational vacations, and anyone interested in America's scientific history.
