What’s your favourite museum and why?
Javaneh Fennell The Musée d’Orsay in Paris! The layout is phenomenal ( it’s an old train station) and the artwork there is truly breathtaking. The clock upstairs allows you to peek out at the city Nathan McGrath St Fagans near Cardiff. It has buildings rebuilt from all over Wales. Absolutely amazing. From a Celtic roundhouse to a miner’s terrace via a medieval church and cockfighting ring! Liz Goodwin Bluff Cove, because someone actually built a museum in this remote part of the Falklands in the first place. Exhibits show the farming gear used by the first settlers, and a local lady plays guitar out front Les Pilling IWM Duxford. You can touch and smell the exhibits, which transports you back in time. The atmosphere stepping inside an old aeroplane really is electrifying Nina Oliveira The British Museum, for the Egyptian collection. I remember being enchanted; I did not expect all those colours! So wonderful! Patrick Lewis The best three museums on the planet are the Vasa in Stockholm, the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo and the British Museum @ curatedjenny Roman Vindolanda: sprawling, beautiful, well interpreted, and you get to meet real archaeologists in the dirt! @ cazp53 Big Pit has my vote. Nothing prepares you for that underground experience! Fitting memorial to miners everywhere @maryqmcgowan Kelvingrove in Glasgow. Eclectic mix of exhibits catering for everyone, for free, in the most beautiful building @LauraSellers11 Either Soane’s Museum for sheer exuberance or Wakefield’s Mental Health Museum for sensitively addressed asylum history and modern mental health @ jacobatkinson99 The National Railway Museum tells a fantastic story of the evolution and impact of the railways, and how they have shaped not just Britain, but the world @PointonJ75 The World Museum in Liverpool: it’s always felt like a special place and the architecture is stunning
