||Beamish, The North
of England Open Air Museum|
Its a quirky world for kids, for adults and for thrill seekers where the unexpected happens routinely.
Crawl into the new Dung Heap playground, swing into Extraordinary Golf, take a gravely spooky stroll through the new Haunted Hollow,
visit Willy Wonka in his fantabulous Chocolate Factory or scream your way to Oblivion, all in the name
of unadulterated fun
the Viking World - Dublin|
The award-winning Dublinia is now joined by an exciting new exhibition: The
Viking World. The Viking world will link with Dublinia to provide a comprehensive
history of early Dublin. From the Vikings to Strongbow and beyond, visitors
will experience first-hand the turbulent history of early Dublin brought vividly
to life. Dublinia & The Viking World recreate the lifestyle of Vikings
and medieval Dubliners to provide a unique insight into their everyday lives and
reveal how their influence is still felt today.
& Wordsworth Museum|
Dove Cottage was home to the Romantic poet William Wordsworth (1770-1850) and his
family for 8 1/2 years (1799-1808). Here Wordsworth wrote many of his most
famous poems. There are many ideas associated with 'Romatic' poetry, but one of the most important for Wordsworth was to show the link between human experience
and the natural world. Wordsworth loved and drew inspiration from the landscape
of the Lake District, his home. Today we hope the the importance of place
has been retained: that interacting with Wordsworth's work, in the place it was
created, allows the freshness of the original inspiration to live.
In Getreidegasse no. 9, is where the Leopold Mozart family lived from 1747 to 1773.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born here on January 27, 1756. Today the rooms
once occupied by the Mozart family house a museum. The most famous exhibits
include Mozart's childhood violin, his concert violin, his clavichord, the pianoforte,
portraits and correspondence of the Mozart family.
||The Louvre -
The Louvre, in its successive architecural metamorphoses, has dominated central
Paris since the late 12th century. Built on the city's western edge, the original
structure was gradually engulfed as the city grew. The dark fortress of the
early days was transformed into the modernised dwelling of Francois I and, later,
the sumptuous palace of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Here your group can explore
the history of this extraordinary edifice and of the museum that has occupied it
||Van Gogh Museum -
Enjoy the world's largest collection of Van Goghs, including paintings, drawings and letters. The museum also has
a large collection of works by some of Van Gogh's contempories and friends like Gauguin and Toulouse-Lautrec, as well as a number
of older artists whom Van Gogh admire, including Leon L'hermitte and Jean-Francois Millet. The Museum features regular exhibitions highlighting art toward the end of the 19th century
