Museum Maps

I've been to several museums on this trip. While some of them are very familiar to museums I had experienced in the states, some of them were simply unique.

The British Museum was quite like every other major museum I have been to, where each wing is dedicated to each part of the world and its artifacts. I had no problem navigating the museum, but did have problems remembering what I had seen.

After the British Museum, however, I spent the majority of my time in museums that were preserving itself. By this I mean, museums that are showcasing itself. Such as:

The Discovery
Glamis Castle

The Tower of London

This was no exception for Glasgow School of Art. The building was the subject of the museum. I remember so much more from these types of museums than I ever do for museums of things they dug up.
