Gallery Hopping

Since the boys have gone back to school, I have decided to visit an art gallery every second Wednesday.
So here are the galleries I have been to in the past 6 weeks. I let the mums from school know that I am going, and anyone is welcome to join me.

Rembrandt:- Quest of a Genius

I went to this one with Ann from school. The audio guide for this exhibition was brilliant!

East German Museum
http://www.ddr-museum.de/en/
The GDR ceased to exist 17 years ago.This museum shows how everyday life in the GDR was like.
It is an interactive museum, and was really interesting. Cotton was not widely available behind the wall, so most clothes were made using polyester.....the clothes had an awful feel to them...I hate to think what it would be like to wear them every day.
I went to this museum with Sonia, Michelle, Jacqui and Wendy, it was a great insight to what life was like behind the wall. Note....lots of nude swimming in Summer!
