Quote of the Month

A museum is a place where time has become space.

  – Orhan Pamuk, The Museum of Innocence

 

I think this quote really captures the museum experience.

Museums turn their subject matter into a physical experience – whether history, art, ethnography or science. While period houses are the most obvious culprits, all museums tell stories about different times and places by virtue of simply placing objects around a room.

So next time you go to a museum, think about the story the space around you is telling.
