A recent article posted by the Museum of Broadcast Communications (MBC) extolled the virtues of museums as reflections of history. Look what two distinguished museums were cited:
“All museums, whether they are The Louvre in Paris or the National Mustard Museum in Wisconsin, stand as representatives of a history that is in danger of being lost. Without the preservation of great art or historical artifacts or science and technology advances — or mustard — it can be easy to lose touch with the historic and artistic accomplishments that were the predecessors of today’s world.”
The chief curator of the Louvre must be thrilled at being mentioned in the same breath as the National Mustard Museum. And the Louvre doesn’t even have a rubber chicken for a mascot (who at the moment happens to be missing).
