Exhibit In Transition


On my last trip to London, I spent one afternoon wandering through the Victoria & Albert Museum.  The V & A is one of many fabulous museums to explore in the city of London.  I wandered into a room where things looked a bit different. There were no workmen around so I couldn't tell if this was an exhibit that was arriving at the museum or if it was being packed up to be shipped somewhere else.

Even though I had no idea what this exhibit was about, I still found it fascinating to see how such important pieces are packed and shipped from museum to museum.  

I can't begin to imagine how those huge columns are going to be moved.

This was in the fall of 2016.  I don't know if this exhibit was arriving or leaving but the process for packing was interesting to view.

That is an amazing museum, and a great Egyptian collection, coming or going.

It would be a very careful process.
