Solemn Afternoon au Musée d'art et d'histoire



Walking back from the dentist the other day,
I passed by the Museum of Art and History.

I vaguely remembered that the admission was free there.
But since it was monday, it was closed.
So, I decided to come back with a friend.



The Museum of Art and History...

From such an arbitrary name, I didn't know what to expect.

The first exhibition hall was full of old artifacts like these.

I love music and musical instruments060.gif
I found these items intriguing.

Then we came into a large hall like this.

How grand!!

Lots of ancient pistols, swords and armors were kept here.
Hmmm, a bit repetitive...

Right after I took the last picture,
a docent came to tell me that photography was forbidden.

I said,
"Even without the flash?!"

He said,
"Yes, with or without."

Alright, then...

I'm used to seeing signs at museums prohibiting the use of flash.
But why ban photography all together?

The building itself is quite stunning.
I dream of living in a place like this one day...
Come on, Euromillions!!!

The upstairs housed things that are my speed.

Contemporary art and voluptuary classic paintings.

As I followed the masterpieces to the back of the hall,
I heard music being played.

Live music.

Then a long drape elongated on the floor came into my view.

A dancer.

OH!! How delightful!!

An unity of Baroque music and contemporary dance,
that is right up my alley!!

I couldn't quite figure out what the music was,
but it was played on a reed organ. Its resonance was awe-inspiring.

Especially among all the paintings in the room,
it was a magical place for that moment.

I guess they were rehearsing for the museum's big centennial festival.

Taken at the actual festival.

I felt quite lucky to be there without the suffocating crowd of people.

After being inspired, we went down to the café for hot chocolate006.gif
How can I make something like this happen?
I'm oozing with creativity now006.gif

Isn't it fun to go to museums?

Thanks for reading my blog!!
