Museum Day - your favourite museum or experience

My favourite museum? Too hard to choose just one! I love the Victoria and Albert here in London with its vast variety of beautiful archives, the National Gallery and Tate Britain for the Turners, my all-time favourite artist. But, I love the Uffici, too in Florence, and the Rennie  MacIntosh museums in Glasgow, and the Russell-Cotes in Bournemouth, and the Fitzwilliam in Cambridge.....

 We went to see The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman, Grayson Perry's Exhibition at the British Museum ta couple of years ago. Fabulous! If you didn't seen it, he curated his own work alongside artefacts and pieces in the permanent collections that inspired him; from pilgrimages to amphoras. The entrance has his wonderful pink motorbike with a throne for his teddy Alan Measles (too precious to exhibit - he has a stand-in in 'Ted') for their roadtrip around Germany. We bought the catalogue and some postcards to remind us.

Here we are, reflected in the wheel cover!
