Mysterious Museums
#1
May sound a bit unwelcoming to men, but actually a very interesting museum in the heart of Tallin, Estonia.
(It actually means "peek into the kitchen").

Ok, I had to look at that for a minute to get the joke but interesting nonetheless.

Confucius say he who go through turnstile sideways going to Bangkok LOL

I've never been out of the US yet.. But this would be nice to visit.. Anything about a country and it's history sounds great. The older the better Smile

The Castles in England and Ireland... and of course Ancient Egypt with the pyramids etc..

It's difficult for those of us who live in small countries to imagine how enormous the USA is. I doubt if anyone could see all of it in a lifetime of concentrated "tourism". As for "the oldest" there are several candidates, but Ancient Egypt is as good as any, though I always plead with prospective visitors to also take in nearby Petra, which is only a little on from cave-dwelling. As for eastern Europe, like Estonia, it has some of the most wonderful scenery on earth, many historic towns and a few great cities. The museum shown is actually in relation to a military bastion made from stone, and with tunnels, all dating from 1219 and much of it original. The museum "a peek in the kitchen" tries to show military life in this defensive bastion from those times, and very interesting it is, too!

The USA is big, but it doesn't have anywhere near the history of Europe.. and I mean history of human settlements, governments etc. We have the Discovery of America in 1492 and onward... and most of that seems primitive because of it all being new and in the wilderness.. log cabins vs your stone military bastion sounds like no contest.

Seems like we need a whole new thread on this subject!

It's hard staying strictly on topic... I think if it keeps growing then yes... but if it's just a few follows ups to the original topic then so what... Let's ask the judge.

Museum of Failure

Couldn't let this one pass by......

Why should all museums be celebrations of achievement, discovery and expertise? The Swedes have got failure covered (from June 2017).
