Tip: Former winners in Birmingham

I recently went to the Barber Institute of Fine Arts which was recently reopened at Birmingham University (free but initial reservation). It was the last house I visited before I closed, and the first one to start, and it was like seeing my old friends. It’s a little decorative, catchy stone, among others, Simone Martini, Claude, Degas, Canaletto and, most beloved, a delightful Gainborough showcasing her two daughters riding in a grass cart. Built in an art gallery, it’s a great place to stay for an hour, followed by a cake on the outskirts of Winterbourne House.

I have visited Nottingham Contemporary art gallery in the city’s Lace Market several times since the closure ended. With a beautiful state-of-the-art concrete house with outdoor (painted) cords, a large air-conditioned lounge, and a nice cafe and gift shop, all of which have been especially healing. The Denzil Forrester art exhibition has just finished and a new one has just opened featuring the adaptation of Grace Jones and the recording by Jimmy Robert of Berlin. It is a nice house just to roam (freely) in the beautiful city area and there is always something fun to look at.

Carnegie carry, Dunfermline

Andrew Carnegie’s charitable power is felt around the world, from libraries to museums. A visit to the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum in Dunfermline will bring you back to the beginning of this story. From the small cottage where he lives with his family to his voyage to the sea and finally to the great world power, the story is told in a way that appeals to visitors of all ages. I am proud to have this museum in my home. It may be small but it carries punches, probably like the same Andrew Carnegie. Power is reduced due to Covid security and internet storage is essential.

Covered by Gretna’s wedding fame, the Devil’s House of Porridge in Eastriggs collects the history of a large factory north of Solway (satan’s porridge was an eagle name). Sadly there is no house left and the ground is littered with medical waste, but through photographs, a bulletin board, costumes, machines and experiments, the museum describes how the construction work works for thousands of people, especially women, to make bombs through both. world wars until the Cold War. Stories and photographs of the efforts and dedication of these women make for a fascinating reading.

Almost like going to a club, London

Kraftwerk Exhibition at the Design Museum.

The Electronic Exhibition at the Design Museum is very close and I think we will be back in the club. Once inside you can hear the intricate lists of house, techno and drums and bass passing through you. It takes you on a journey to the memoir from the time he founded theremin to Aphex Twin and Weirdcore, juke and travels to Chicago and Detroit, not to mention where techno and houses are run by black people. Go see the late mouth in the mouth of a loved one and restore the dance floor.

Wait with Damien, London

I love Damien Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery in London at Vauxhall, which reopened yesterday (October 7) with a new exhibition called End of a Century. There is no trolley strain as in other areas as there is plenty of space: each room has clean white walls and shutters so you can just enjoy the art and sit in it completely untouched by the rest. This also makes it worthwhile to stay away from people, and it’s free.

Promoting medical care, London

Skull bottles and drugs at the Old Operating Theater Museum

The Old Operating Theater Museum at St Thomas Church in Southwark is lined with wood and tranquility, freezing for a long time before sexually transmitted drugs or painkillers. On the narrow steps and running down the floor of the incoming machine there is an old inspired apothecary with amazing medicinal and healing properties. With mental illness in my mind now, seeing how far the medicine has come is inspiring. The steps leading up to the dry herbal atmosphere give the place a crazy, magical feeling of magic, too.

The National Coalmining Museum in Overton, West Yorkshire, is a real treat. We loved this “darn pit” trip secretly under the cover (which is supposed to imitate young people who are often sad!) Where the former salesman also gave us stories of what happened at the mines. Leaders absolutely make the place what it is. We loved meeting horses and horses and visiting so many different people. Concluding the playground has ended a fun, and free day.

St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery in Lymington, Hampshire,

The St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery in Lymington, Hampshire, is a gemstone. A large museum takes you through the history of the archeology, and displays the findings as the “Boldre hoard” of Roman coins. There is a real boat and similar children’s exhibitions, as well as regular art events and group events. The other half of the newly constructed exhibit is a masterpiece with local and national exhibitions. The museum also has a beautiful, local cafe and shopping center featuring local artists. I don’t think people will realize it exists, but going to Lymington isn’t enough without passing through.

Upstream above the Bath opposite the beautiful Limpley Stoke in Avon Valley lies the American Museum and Gardens. Renewed two years ago the harvest of the field is good. Fascinating US apartments are also remodeled in Claverton Manor’s house with decorative art for four centuries. The take-and-go cafe offers American favorite favorites and all freshly prepared meals. You enjoy safe drinks in a crowded area with fields and valleys. New playgrounds have just opened. There is no need to register in advance but the fields are only 300 people a day and the Claverton Manor collections run on their own between 11am and 4pm.
Adult £ 10, 5-17 years £ 7.50, family (2 + 3) £ 22.50, open Tuesday-Sunday

Village Watts Artists’ Village is a picturesque area of ​​Surrey Hills, just a 10 minute drive from Guildford. The main building features beautiful portraits of George Frederic Watts, a one-room workshop for Evelyn and William De Morgan. Five minutes down the road is the Watts Mortuary Chapel, created by Watts’ fellow artist and his wife, Mary Fraser Tytler, and executed with great skill by the skills and members of the local parish.

The horror of astrology, Suffolk

Moyse’s Hall Museum in Bury St Edmunds may be small but has a number of exhibits. Only the old houses are worth a visit and as one of the previous settlements was like the police, it has a section of violence and punishment. Notable items include an unassuming gibbet cage and the deadly shell of a well-known 19th-century murderer. The most intriguing is the series of well-known watches – I love the stunning pocket decorations.

The recently renovated Cambridge Museum of Zoology (free but free online) is a well-known stone among concrete building houses. It opened at the end of last month. The landscape is ideal from under the whale skeleton (pictured) and other great features include a long sloth, Darwin land from his Beagle trek and, my favorite, a large but fascinating animal.
