London: Museum Day- cools, bro

The British Museum rules. They let you take pictures of EVERYTHING (my one criteria for a good museum), and it's so bright, light and beautiful in there. Here's a devil from Bolivia, and some spirit from the South Seas hanging with Eddie- thumbs up, dude. Seriously worth the visit. We saw the Rosetta Stone and the Tuts- pretended to be the Tuts, too.












This is from the Tate Modern, it's Cy Twombly. Go to the top floor or become a member for a drink and a great view of the Thames. I love the Tate Modern. We didn't have time to look around this time, but it's a no-brainer, awesome place.

The Serpentine (Serpenteennnn!) Gallery was another sight to see. Located in Hyde Park, this outdoor space was designed by Frank Gehry. Every year I think they knock it down and someone else builds a public space. Inside was work by Richard Prince. I got yelled at for taking pics. Miami's own TM Sisters actually showed there once. A great honor for two super cool bros.

I agree that museums that allow pics are the best kind. Otherwise, what's the point?
I want to go to the Serpentine Gallery NOW.
