This Belongs in a Museum

Once called the "Stephen Fry of Museum Blogging," this tumblog, written by a frustrated museologist, is dedicated to the small, random museums and weird attractions of the world. Always informative, usually funny, sometimes offensive.

Bringing you museum-approved grammatical errors and typos since 2010.

Yesterday Catholics all over the world found out they will soon get a new Pope. And whatever old white Catholic dude is chosen to next ride in the Popemobile, I’m sure he will not live up to the cream of the crop of old white Catholic dudes: Pope John Paul II. Did you know the Pope John Paul II Shrine in Washington D.C. is literally a shrine to this venerable, beatified, holiest of holys??? Even though John Paul II was one of the best-known, longest-serving Popes of all time (take that, Kanye), his museum/think tank was not very popular with the public. After the archdiocese discovered museums are costly, especially when nobody comes knocking at your door, the Knights of the Columbus purchased the building, and are currently giving it a bit of a makeover after ten years of existence. The papal memorabilia in the exhibit includes your typical religious items, like the Pope’s vestments and writings, found in the special “Papal and Polish Heritage Room.” That exhibit traces the Pope’s lifetime in four parts and focuses on his connection with the Jewish people. But the interesting part is learning about the Pope’s athletic abilities. Yes, this Polack put the ski in ski as visitors can check out his skis, poles and low-key exercise shoes. During his Popedom he made at least one-hundred clandestine trips to the Italian mountains dressed in ski apparel to participate in one of his favourite outdoor activities, skiing. He also enjoyed mountain climbing, hiking and kayaking. That’s just weird. Oh, and in case God hasn’t been answering your prayers, the first Popemobile lives on at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Germany. So now you know. God bless!
