Oasis in the city

I took the twins into town this afternoon, for a busy afternoon meeting some clients.  While criss crossing the centre we dropped into the National Museum of Scotland to give the kids a banana and some milk.

I’m so glad the museum is open again (after being closed for refurbishment), it is great we have these educational places which are free, where you can sit for a while without having to buy a coffee (unless you want too) and soak up a little of the amazing facts and figures from the exhibits that surround you.

For instance earlier we all met today’s sketch subject, Arensnuphis, whose statue dates back to around 50BC and would once of stood guard outside a temple.

Visit here for more information, and watch out for the upcoming Fascinating Mummies exhibition, from 11th February to 27th May 2012.
