national museum

By no.6 - 3 December 2009 22

the national museum is advertising [although not on NMA’s recruitment page – Ed] for a new director [the previous director, Craddock Morton, announced his retirement in Sept – Ed] ..   oh i hope he /she is not a fan of multi interactive screens and noise noise noise ..

why cant we just see some of the thousands  of objects you keep hidden from us whilst you fill spaces with annoying loud flickering garbage..

im not anti techno with delicate ears but come on … how on earth can you enjoy it with your senses being abused .. most other museums have an inviting environment to learn and absorb ..

anyone feel the same … no under 10’s allowed to answer!

What’s Your opinion?

Why are under 10s not allowed to comment? Are they not part of our community too who are also entitled to an interesting experience at our national museum?

Good point: my eldest loves the museum. If I ask where they want to go and rattle off a list of national institutions, she always wants to go to the museum…

The NMA is reputed to be seriously haunted….

I wouldn’t have expected that, since the building itself is scarcely 10 years old.

However, if you allow for it’s significant collection of sacred indigenous artefacts, and it’s long history as a Hospital and Hospice site before it was a Museum, then perhaps there is ample justification for a few ‘ghosts’. There would have been quite a few traumatic deaths associated with that location.

Pity that the overwhelming noise and flickering screens do give it the sensation of a mall with very few products. If it were quieter, one might spot something really interesting!

Agreed, the layout is also horrible for tourists. It’s actually pretty simple – just one unfurling corridor – but most first-time visitors don’t seem to realise that.

Don’t even get me started on the GOAD, or “Garden of Australian Dreams” >:(
