Favorite Photos: On Display

It’s Friday again, and that means it’s time for #FriFotos on Twitter. This week’s theme is “museums”, and I think by now we all know how I like my museums: small and quirky. Of course, I’m always willing to make an exception if a particular exhibit catches my fancy. So, without further ado, here are photos of some of my favorite museums (okay, and an aquarium) from my travels.

The Borax Museum (yes, Borax) in Furnace Creek, California.

Exterior of Yin Yu Tang, a Qing Dynasty Chinese house, now relocated to the Peabody-Essex Museum in Massachusetts.

Big and small: Angus MacAskill and Tom Thumb at the Giant Angus MacAskill Museum on Scotland’s Isle of Skye.

Love these little creatures! A seadragon at the New England Aquarium.

An iron maiden at the Medieval Crime Museum in Rothenberg, Germany.

A vintage sign at Florida’s Naples Depot Museum.

A ship at New York’s South Street Seaport Museum.

Part of last summer’s visiting Dale Chihuly exhibit at Boston’s Museum of Fine Art.

Opulence overload at the Treasury in Munich, Germany.

Oh my! Some pretty freaky-looking “Real Dolls” at the Museum of Sex in New York City.

Inflatable “shooting stars” were part of last year’s FAST Light exhibit at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Crazy couch at the Goldwell Open Air Museum in Death Valley.

  1. Interesting, and a bit freaky, one picture raised an eyebrow! I wish I could have taken pictures at the Vatican museum especially the world’s most famous chapel, the sistine chapel. Pictures would never do it justice though. I also enjoy museums, and it looks like you have been to some usual and not-so-famous ones. I’m grateful you shared.
