Our museum guest-book — a source for romantic encounters

By October 31, 2008No Comments

The thick guest-book for the Oldetopia-exhibition is filled up with visitors’ comments and we had to buy a new one.

As Bente (our outreach officer) says, an exhibit guest-book is a wonderful medium for public response — because it conveys people’s immediate reactions: their thoughtful critical remarks, their enthusiasm, and even occasional outbursts of disgust.

Here are a few selected pages from the last 12 months.

In this one, Kris tells one of our handsome, cool and knowledgeable medical student guides:

1000 thanks, TOTAL cosiness.
You have cured my fear of dentists
Hugz   Kris (born 1986)

What more can I say? Museums are not just temples of heritage, they are also arenas for the immediate expression of romantic love.

And here John proclaims that we are a really “sick museum”:


Well — we knew that, didn’t we?
