    Ever Since I Was a Kid

    I have loved going to museums.  My dad worked security for the Museum of History and the Museum of Art at the University of Utah.  He got us discount passes.  I used to enjoy seeing history, romance, archetecture, and social matters through the eyes of various...

    Museum Freak

    I love museums!  I am the only one I know who really does, when people hear they think I am odd.  I feel validated. I live in Texas so have been to the Houston museums a lot.  It started because my Dad and I would always have Spring Break together and besides...

    Especially When Travelling

    I not only like museums for the beauty and history but it can say alot about the place you're visiting.   And it can also be a good learning experience.  It's always a must when I travel.

    Peace

        There is an endless plethora of knowledge within a museum. You can feel it surround you. I like to go to a museum or art gallery just to immerse myself in the cultural and artistic aura that has withstood the ages. It always fills me with a great sense of...

    This is not my normal museum experience

    but it was very enjoyable. I recently took my kids to see the Mesopotamia exhibit at the ROM. I was very excited! I love to learn new things and especially love history. I started out by reading each exhibit in order but my kids became bored, pretty quickly. Luckily, there was...

    Access

    Either for business or for pleasure, when I arrive in a country for the first time, I want to see the museums.  When my schedule doesn't allow it, I will steal the time needed to step out of my way.  I feel a sense of urgency as if the occasion will never present...

    I love the Museums with the "old" art - the

    European Art - not a big fan of Modern art but I do love Norman Rockwell. My favorite ones Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Frick Museum and the Cloisters. Also the main branch of the NY Public Library, love those Lion.

    Love Your Job

    Connecting With the Past

    When my wife and I are on holidays, we almost always visit a museum or two. Even we we're not travelling overseas. Some may think museums are strictly for nerds, but it's always great to see so many normal people and happy groups there.  Museums help me get into an...

    The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles,

    the California Science Center, and the California African American Museum are a little over a mile away from me. My family and I visit the three quite often. I figure that it would be dreadful for us to have such valuable resources down the street from us and we never use them...

    It's My Travel Prerequisite

    Two days ago at the Musée d'Orsay.

    I was tired already, but decided to take a look at their new acquisitions that are on display in a separate room. I sauntered, not expecting much, when suddenly I discovered a painting I have been adoring for years now. I couldn't believe I finally saw it "in the flesh...
