Wallace Collection

I had lunch yesterday at the Wallace Collection. Whenever possible, I check that the display of armour in the Wallace Collection has not yet been modernised, as it is one of the last places where one can enjoy a wholly traditional museum display, nearly exactly as it was when first laid out in 1908, dense with objects and minimal labelling.

Of course, one day it may have to change, but I hope that some of its atmosphere can be preserved.
