In Topic: Farewell, Noble Planetarium

Circa 1963 or so, my 6 year older brother was taking astronomy classes at the museum...I was 8-9, he was 14-15. I got to run around the rest of the closed museum while he was in the classroom..2-3 times a week, knew the museum well...
.do you remember the large round open area by the entrance ramp to the planetarium? And off to the side were some snakes...I remember they had a Florida Indigo Snake...Drymarchon coaris couperi...I had one for a pet from 1966-82.
There was a small pool away from the entrance ramp to the planet. and they had a few turtles and one or two 2-3 foot alligators...open top...to pool...no one to watch children, usually...and I don't remember any kids getting a finger bit off...we seemed to have common sense then...

My Mother b 1916 would take us to the Zoo in the late 50's early 60's...she would now and then mention a woman jumping from the higher floor to her death...was a scandal in the time...Mom came to FW in 1939.
