Monday 5 September 2011: Nucleotide child
I promised Bella I'd take her to the recently refurbished museum after her first full day back at school. So, being a dad of my word, that's exactly what we did.
It was good, but neither a million miles away from nor a million times better than what I remember pre-refurbishment. It was cleaner and more organised feeling, but seemed a lot more sparse at the same time - particularly the main hall. Maybe that's a good thing, I don't know.
And for a man who used to spend his life designing and building interactive touch screens, I've now decided they're utterly pointless in these places. It doesn't matter how good the content is, museums shouldn't be about staring at even more screens.
And the cafe's no shy with its prices.
But Bella loved it.
