I don't know anyone who's been to that and liked it. Sponsored by Agent Provocateur and it shows - very little interesting historical content.

Museums are not getting any better. A lack of online collections, collections difficult to access because of not knowing what terminology the museum is using, & a distinct lack of items showing, online or in the museum, & the lack of dating on items! I find this lack of dating amazing in a museum collection. Some items do have 18th or 19th century, but these span 100 years! Much stuff gets dumped in the backroom or basement never to be seen again! If there is a FEEDBACK option on a museum site, I always let them know what I would like to see. Perhaps if everyone did this we may see some improvements.
