Favourite Museums

My favourite museum is the Metropolitan in New York. I have only been there a couple of times but my wife has been there several times. My most favourite thing about the Metropolitan is that I often get lost and it takes some time to get out, but I see something wonderful in the process. Some years ago, my wife and I were searching for the Arms and Armour exhibit and couldn’t find it. To be accurate I was looking for the exhibit, she kindly followed along. Looking around I was sure that we had walked by this particular area before, so I decided it was time to ask directions. I approached a staff member and asked where I could find the Arms and Armour exhibit; he pointed to a door not ten feet away.

Museums can be wonderful places. I like sculpture, but I am not a sculptor. We’ve just returned from a trip to Washington DC, and a look at the museums on the mall, including some Smithsonian museums. We saw a wonderful sculpture called the Veiled Nun. I don’t understand how you can see through marble but I could definitely see through the veil.
