Ideas


Every good museum ends with a tour of the gift shop. But don't worry, our tour isn't over yet! I just wanted to showcase this quote from Humboldt himself for Signs, Signs.

  2. That is a nice quote and it leads you right to the gift shop :)

  3. Nice quote indeed and stay always curious. Also one Humboldt's characteristics.

  4. I'm afraid that if I walked down the stairs and read the sign the writing at the same time that I'd fall down the stairs...not too good at mutitasking

  5. I never see many people in these gift shops and certainly I don't see many people buying things. Maybe I'm just there at the wrong time. By the way, why do we need a "w" in the word, wrong. Why not just "rong?" English is crazy sometimes.

  9. Interesting angles. I would argue with the quote though.

  10. I hate to admit that there are a few museums I've been to where I've spent more time in the gift shops than the museums.

    1. Me too! I love spending time in the Museum gift shop. I often buy a postcard of a work I liked or a magnet for my refrigerator gallery. :)
