Classic, amazing collection ranging from funerary practices and tools to serial killers and everything in between. Popular with goths and their boyfriends. When I bought me ticket, Ozzie Osbourne-y seller said "have fun," and I laughed at him.

6th Street and Constitution Avenue NW
Washington2056538.892092-77.019973
Busy, but magic collection. Some dusty, staid exhibition techniques. (Would love to see an Art Gallery of SA approach, where there's interesting chronological hijinx in more traditional galleries.)

Reached out and touched a shiva. Quiet beep came from somewhere. Invigorating. Beautiful collection, if you like that sort of thing. Wayfinding lacking.

Can go to the cafe for free. Possibly more interesting to be inside a Bloomsbury house than see the Dickens stuff, but that's probably just me.
16

Temporary exhibit made in 6 weeks (may be permanent), great use of social media... a cycle of creation/display/feedback

Wow. Terrible wayfinding. Everyone there is looking for something. Good cafe, although that also caused angst in the lady ahead of me. Design like airport might kill a museum? Learn from Louvre about people moving?
19
gfs:visit=1819-Aug-2014Geffrye Museum of the HomeMhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geffrye_Museumfounded:1914http://www.geffrye-museum.org.uk/136 Kingsland RoadLondonE2 8EA51.53156-0.07627
Good physical tools to help people learn about the Long Corridor. Good idea to actually install artifacts along a chronology. Even though it might be bland (digitally?), it makes a lot of sense.

Super outdoor trams situation, sheds full of old trams, installations about Olde England horse life and energy (and poo). Pub also, where we all ended up after looking around at Laptops and Looms.

Too big to fail. Crowded. Bland exhibits. Royal Beasts decidedly wan. Institutions this big are almost passive.

Nothing like the real thing and some wax humans. Churchill Museum was impressive. Good proximity tricks. Big screen table interactive a little dense and tricky, plus reading angle 90' away from head/eyes.

Tourist trap. One good thing was that you could try the torture devices (within reason), and lift chains and things to feel how heavy they were.

The chap at the front desk.
Asked about numbering system. Learned the place suffered a direct hit during WWII, in 1941, losing half the collection. About half the collection is on display.

Loved it. The light in the studio was exquisite. Docent even told me how I was supposed to pat the cat. (But, museum cat!) Lady selling tickets was also an Oates.

Went for the cherry festival. Superb guide was a gardener who'd planted much of the archive. Ate cherries from the tree. Reminded me of sushi (because it was so fresh and delicious).
