This was a good exhibition on the whole. Not entirely successful in my opinion, but overall quite good. I especially liked the 2nd half of the exhibition. Which was more about the impact of Troy on art and culture. That was the most interesting part from my perspective. I found that quite fascinating.
I visited the Berlin Musical Instrument Museum at the beginning of December last year. I’d never been before, but I do love to visit museums of this kind. Whilst for the most part it was largely concerned with traditional instruments, it did have a little corner tucked away for electronic instruments, and that was nice. Not huge by any means, but nice.
Overall it was a fun place to visit, although, unlike some similar museums, I probably wouldn’t go again.
I didn’t have much time on my visit to this amazing building. But it was worth every minute I was there. I really enjoyed it a great deal. The architecture is amazing and very beautiful, as are the exhibits and everything about this place.
I’d love to go back, but my guess is that’s probably not very likely.
I really enjoyed this museum in Naples. Not only was it an amazing building and really quite cheap to get into, but also it was almost completely empty.
Some amazing exhibits from Pompeii.
I was at the Horniman Museum recently and took a look at a few of their temporary exhibitions including this one on the Tuareg.
The exhibition is called Tuareg: People of the Veil, and although only a small exhibition I really enjoyed looking around it at the textiles.
The Horniman is one of my favourite museums and I’ve spent many happy hours there over the years. It always has something interesting going on and is very good at serving it’s local community as well.
Places like the Horniman are really important. They may not have huge multimedia exhibitions running all the time, but they have exhibits that you might not see anywhere else. Places like this should be protected. They’re important.
