Tales of plunder and philanthropy, power and passion. This is a collection of epic proportions, so we resolve to limit ourselves to the 1st floor only for our initial foray into this behemoth of a museum. From Egyptian to Medieval, Greek and Roman to Arms and Armor. Arts from Africa, Oceania and the Americas. A touch on Modern and Contemporary arts and many interior tableaux later, we were amazed but arted out.
Whats not to like about it. Tell that to our feet.
Round 2 this week = Floor 2.
It's a hell of a lot of Nic-nak's to get through.
