National Museum out of space

By johnboy 18 December 2008 71

The Canberra Times has the astonishing news that the National Museum has run out of space for its collection.

This despite having an enormous building and nothing at all that anyone wants to see.

Flog some crap on Ebay is my advice.

What’s Your opinion?

purple glass telegraph conductors for me. very rare and very collectable.

I remember you used to see quite a few of those about, but now I realise I haven’t seen any in yonks. I guess those ceramic things they put on power poles took over.

Haha, Uncle King Arthur’s camelot, which stands out like dog balls on a mouse on the headland.

Nope, I was there to wander around the real Tintagel castle, not that monstrousity that calls itself Camelot.

Besides, I was born in Redruth 😉

PB, last year so a long time after the floods. Nice little town although we stayed at Tintagel and got on the suace there 😉

Ah Tintagel! Home of the cheap and nasty King Arthur rip off. (Great castle though)
Did you try thr “Excaliburger” at the pub there?

I would be up for seeing a good bottle display. bottles are excellent and there’s been some good ones over the years. I had an enterprising collection going, but ended up getting rid of most of them. The old bottles are really interesting.

Witchcraft museum was pretty cool, bizarre, badly designed, under funded, over crowded with irrelevent rubbish, but cool.

And by witch, we are talking male and female.

Were you there before or after the floods? People in eeh area couldn’t work out if the flooding of Boscastle was due to god being angry with the village for having a “Witchcraft Museum”, or for having a female vicar*.

Or it may have been just due to the consturction abilities of Cornwall council, who set the standard for dire planning in the UK.

“every-day people displaying their bottles, ceramic cats and Ginger Meggs comics have much more interesting items to show.

Maybe the museum can auction off some of their crap and sponser some interesting visiting displays.”

Hear Hear, Feathergirl 🙂

They should have kept the honest, solid Canberra Hospital building and turned it to other community purposes.
