Weekend at the Museum: Armchair Travel into the Past


I’m one of those tourists that isn’t content to just view the scenery, I want to see what the area looked like years ago too. This means I have a small collection of nineteenth century travel guides for my favorite places. I’m always on the look-out for historic travel guides or a museum exhibit that let me glimpse into the past.

Rome is on my list of must visit places, but I haven’t been yet. I’ll be prepared for that historical road trip though. A new exhibitArtdaily.org – The First Art Newspaper on the Net at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts displays 100 nineteenth century photographs of Rome. How fun!
