The Neues Museum Refurbishment
Everyone rushes to see the bust of Nefertiti, and it is lovely and I sort of understand why they don't want you to photography it: both due to potential loss of image royalties as well as too many people who don't know how to turn off the flash In their camera, but the level of surveillance in this museum is nuts. Over at Pergamon no worries.
A lot's not working at Neues. The mechanical access to the Papyrus Collection display cases is broken, and even the free audio guide to the collection, both permanent and special show bits was telling me "that selection is not valid" too many times.
It's a pity, as there's good stuff thoughtfully curated, in here.
