The National Museum of Alexandria (Egypt).

Alexandria National Museum Was a Disappointment

Alexandria is an ancient city and as any tourist would expect, its National Museum should be filled with great things. But, I was disappointed. While the objects were labeled properly, the museum is dead. Like a necropolis. I think it has something to do with the kind of too much drama in their lightings. Or, […]

Field Museum – A Time Capsule

Visiting the Field Museum in Chicago can be both boring and enlightening. In that order. That’s how I felt while roaming from one exhibit to another. Boring. The facts and information you absorb by reading hundreds of descriptions on each display is just overwhelming. It’s not even interactive. The preserved bodies of animals stood there […]

Chicago Arts Institute – 12 Arts To See

Though not as huge as New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) or Philadelphia’s Museum of Arts, Arts Institute Chicago has its own charming treasures worth a peek. I literally skipped most European arts as I have seen a lot of them—mostly with religious theme but with shirtless or naked biblical and mythological characters. Or […]

New York City – Metropolitan Museum of Art
