I remember this museum back a few decades. At that time, it was like most museums cases and cases of artifacts. You could browse and browse. Mind you there wasn't much in the way of descriptive material to shed light on the subjects. Well, that has changed in the Peabody and I think to its detriment. Much of the space is taken up with a few artifacts and a good deal of text. After reading some of the text, I just wandering paying little attention to anything - just too much overpowering text. If I wanted a book, I would read a book. A wanted a museum.
