Going to Museums

Today I bought a little book called ‘Going to Museums’.  It’s a handsome little missive, published in 1954 and written by Jacqueline Palmer and is part of a series of books for children about Excursions.  Other titles include ‘Going to the Ballet’, ‘Going to the Opera’ and, although there is probably less demand for it now, a guide offering advice on ‘Enjoying Radio and Television’.

When I have a little more time I shall write more about it, but here’s a little excerpt from the introduction for now…

‘full of dust and grey shadows’
