eden camp for me
also, here is a video of the fucking battle of britain
just made that up there, but it could probably be argued.
modern museums specially. Gone the same way the BBC has - from an institution which presumes the intelligence of it's users and LIFTS them up to some rubs thing that dunt do dat.
also find the idea of "a place where history is viewed" to be a bit iffy, for obvious reasons.
stuff not in museums = not history
often reduces history to artifacts and titillating exhibits rather than processes and peoples
still pretty cool to look at old guns and swords and stuff though.
then yes, some modern museums - people's museums - tend to remove items from their context and thus reduce their historical meaning to the layman.
the true purpose of a museum is that it is a resource like a library. artifacts are preserved and displayed for the purpose of study.
also i don't believe that museums create false impressions. in fact this is bollocks. people are not that stupid.
