We went to the Pompeii exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science over the weekend. I truly enjoyed the display, but I’m always surprised at the number of people who need to photograph everything. One individual took illicit video of one of the numerous informational shorts for several minutes, until a docent issued her one of those fantastically judgemental museum cease and desists, much to my delight.
Do these intrepid souls ever gather the family ’round the TV on a Friday night and watch the home movie of their Day at the Museum?
“Oh, honey, there’s that fresco of Hippolytus and Phaedra we loved so much! Wasn’t that delightful?”
