One was a visit to Dick Bruna Huis at the Centraal Museum in Utrecht. It was opened Feb 16 2006 by HRH Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands as a tribute to Dick Bruna.
I loved the gold Miffy welcoming you inside.
Every museum and exhibition I saw in Holland was really cool. They put a lot of effort into how things are displayed, and do it imaginatively. Dick Bruna Huis was no exception.
|So many Miffys!|
|So many translations.|
|Cute Miffy seats.|
|Dutch museums made great efforts for us English speakers.|
It seems Miffy is popular in Japan too.
|Lots of floor height activities for the littlies.|
|Animation figures for Miffy the Movie|
There was an exhibition called With Miffy in the Attic, a rather odd intersection of Miffy with Contemporary Art.
|I don't pretend to understand it.|
I always find it interesting to see displays on how an author/illustrator/artist does their work. I don't think I knew that Dick Bruna did as much non-Miffy work as he did. He designed thousands of book covers and posters for the family A.W. Bruna & Zoon including Maigret covers.
|Did I mention that I really loved gold Miffy?|
The gift shop was loaded with many cool things, and everything Miffy.
|Who wouldn't want a Miffy lamp?|
I might have bought one if it wasn't
Completely Impractical to get back to Australia.
|Saturday Snapshot is a wonderful weekly meme|
