Favorite Things: Museums

Joseph and I are both suckers for museums of all shapes, sorts and sizes. As do all museum aficionados, we have our particularly cherished museums, experiences and works. Here are just a few of mine (although it's hard to pick just a few!):

Favorite Museums

Museu d'Historia de la Ciutat, Barcelona, Spain.

  • An underground museum of Roman excavations. Remarkable elevated museum design.

The Louvre, Paris, France.

  • Joe and I have spent a cumulative five days of our lives in this amazing place, but will need a lifetime to explore it all. Perhaps Joe is starting to feel a little too comfortable there, though?


The Frick Collection, NY

  • If I had to pick just one NY Museum, I guess this would be it.The former residence of Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919), it's all too easy to imagine this museum as your own (rather magnificent) home...

Musée Calvet, Avignon, France

  • My idea of the perfect museum, architecturally, spatially, artwise. Brilliant layout.


Favorite Moments

  • Getting kicked out of the MOMA (well, one exhibit, anyway) for laughing.
  • Seeing the Treasures of Tutankhamen exhibit as a child in 1976, at the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art.
  • Getting stuck in the Louvre past closing time due to lightning storm:
