The Ashmolean, Or “why does that angel be’s naked?”

The offending angel

The Ashmolean is stunning — it’s an art and archeology museum that was full of amazing collections from all over the world.  They have several “trails” for kids.  Today we went looking for elephants and into the cast gallery, and ate a lovely lunch in the cafe.  We had a great time and have plenty more to see when we go back (did I mention all the museums are free…)

Ready to go in

In the casting gallery, they had to find certain statues and then imitate them

Next time, I’ll have them do imitations of this…
