was just wondering how often do people go to cultural or natural places of interest be it a museum, art gallery, historic building, even to a nature reserve.

i am doing a module on london history and it requires a lot of trips to various different museums and i must say i am really liking it ohmy.gif

I had to do that every once in a while during my undergrad (mostly museums) but haven't kept the routine going since then. Such places are out of the way for me so that doesn't help!

I do enjoy the odd bit of culture/art, but don't go that frequently as nobody ever wants to come with me. : (

I have been to the Lentos Kunstmuseum in Linz a few times, and a few times to both the British museum where my sister works, and the V&A to see the David Bowie exhibition and recently the 'disobedient objects' exhibition.

She's a gallery curator, so she works with the artists when they set up and helps to manage the exhibition when it tours. A v interesting job, much more interesting than mine.

tbh both of your jobs are incredible (what with me switching from an environmental earth sciences degree to a history one)

if you are ever in ldn dr b and looking for a good museum i would highly recommend the horniman if you don't know it already in south london. it is amazing and possibly my favourite museum (after the national railway museum naturally)

On some of the modules offered by my history department, you're heavily encouraged to go to galleries and museums for original source work to use in assignments but I've never been, woops kink.gif

Cool, I am in LDN in May for a conference so will definitely take up your recommendation! Thanks Jake.
