The Grand Gallery of the Museum is breathtakingly beautiful, with its high ceiling and bright bay windows. It's the sort of room that I could sit in all day and still find it fascinating and beautiful.
As I wandered through the rooms, I was struck by how different the Museum is since I visited 3 years ago. There's more to see then what I remembered and there's some seriously cool stuff.
I spent ages in a room with costumes on display from far flung places like Tibet, and spent even longer engrossed in an interactive touch screen where you could compose your own music based on traditional sounds and instruments from countries all over the world. It's fair to say that after putting my composition together, I'm definitely never going to make it as a DJ, but it was really interesting to hear how different instruments and music is depending on where you are in the world.
