Estonian Open Air Museum

Estonian Open Air Museum

@Roccaalmare

A year ago I rode a bike around this place (Eesti Vabaõhumuuseum) and had an enjoyable time doing so. I really love open-air museums of this type. Are there any in the USA? I don’t know. I’ve been to them in Japan, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and now Estonia. Highly recommended. Make sure to rent the bike. I saw everything. Had I walked I don’t think I would have seen more than 1/4 of the place.

Mitt i Serige by Peter Tillberg

Nine years ago I walked into this art museum (Länsmuseet Gävleborg or Gävleborg County Museum) near central Gävle, Sweden. Admission was free. Neat place.

The artist of this piece, Peter Tillberg, died in 2016.

Today’s photo comes from The Getty Center in Los Angeles, an art museum that features as much, if not more, art in the architecture, grounds, and views than in the paintings and other works of art in the rooms.
