Lincoln Museum people, if you're reading this: I regret having taken pictures where they weren't allowed, but I did it discreetly and without using a flash, because otherwise how could I have illustrated this blog post? And how could I have idea-mined, which is what all museum people do when they go to other museums?Ultimately, my impression? It was, at times, way too literal and really over-designed.
Sometimes, that over-design was cool:
|Political cartoons from Lincoln's presidency|
Museo delle Cere on Piazza Venezia in Rome:
|Mussolini's Last Fascist Council, in wax.|
