I realise that not all my readers are based in the UK and may or may not ever get here. But I'd like to think, that like me, they enjoy reading about and seeing places regardless of whether they can visit or not.
Just recently I have been gleaning lots of info and tips from Blogworld about the Scottish Islands, as the Mister and I are planning a trip in the new year.
From the House of Edward and Where Five Valleys Meet have made some fabulous recommendations over the last year or so regarding Scotland and The Isles. Sharing at it's best.
So...........what to see at the museum. Well the gardens looked superb. We went late in the day so didn't have time to take a good walk around, but it looked picnic perfect to me. Next time we shall visit in the Summer months and spend the day there.
The museum opened in 1961 and is billed as the only museum of American Decorative and Folk Art outside the United States. There are three floors to explore in the main building, plus a Folk Art annexe and another building that houses the changing exhibitions.
There are numerous 'Period' rooms that are exhibits in themselves, quilts, textiles and Folk Art artefacts. Most of it interesting, although for me I did feel that the history and detail surrounding the subjugation of the Native American population was conspicuous in its absence.
A big welcome to my two new Google Friend Connect followers, Dar Win and Jan.
