The Little Nature Museum was established in the early 1950's. I became familiar with it through my girl friend who became my wife. It was established in Winthrop, MA as that was where Sandy was living. She went to the University of New Hampshire where she kept some animals in her dorm room. Later she married my fraternity roommate. When she got married, she was able to expand the museum.

I think the museum's present location is excellent and the museum has collection that has grown with the space she now has. She has alos arranged for presentations to be made by experts in their fields, which I think is worthwhile. Sandy has put her soul into the museum, and it shows.
