Some of the best museums I've been to are those
tucked away in corners of towns that are not on
the tourist trail like the big money machines in
London and elsewhere. I'm not decrying the worth
of places like the V&A, The Natural History and
Science Museums in London, but the smaller
less-heralded collections often give you more space
to learn and to wonder and wander (and not get
lost), to appreciate the work of the curators or the
team that put it all together. And without
information- overload, it's easier to remember
more of what you've seen. This is a Pegasus radial
areo engine in the Flixton Museum of aviation on
the Suffolk/ Norfolk border, a fascinating
assortment of memorabilia from the earliest days
of flight, with - inevitably - much of it geared
towards WW2 when East Anglia was filled with RAF
and USAAF airfields, aircraft and personnel.
The down side to these local museums is usually that they do not have the funds to
produce a book of their exhibits, and many's the time I wish they had had one available
for purchase. Flixton is one such, and another where I particularly remember being
deprived of a book (but maybe it has one by now) was the MacBride Museum in
Whitehorse, Yukon, a brilliant, well curated collection of all things to do with the northern
territories and native Indian life. With a complete 'Casey Jones' -type steam locomotive
outside.
