We’ve just spent a couple of days in Oxford. Most of yesterday was taken up with visiting the redeveloped Ashmolean Museum. I liked what they’ve done to the place. The beauty of the building is still there, but it’s easier to see everything and you feel a bit less like you’re going from room to room in an endless maze of rooms not knowing when it’s going to end. This kind of feeling is not necessarily a bad thing in a museum, unless you are horribly bored or need to get out quickly, but it’s good to actually be able to see the objects in a (literally) better light. It’s a lot lighter, brighter and erm…smoother, is the only word I can find to describe it without using a thesaurus. I took some pictures (you’re allowed to, don’t worry).
