One of my favorite museums in the US is The Walters Art Museum in Balti Maryland One of the reasons for that is they have this Chamber of Wonders which includes arms and armor boo hiss no one cares and this one room that s filled with all these marvelous and strange things And it s this room that I just adore to pieces and could spend hours in just becauseAlso there s this painting The Archdukes Albert and Isabella Visiting a Collector s Cabinet 1621 23 that I can stare at forever too because there s so much happening in this paintingHi NerdI also liked that book A Cabinet of Medical Curiosities because well I m interested in medical curiosities as well as worldly curiositiesMy point is I enjoy learning about these sorts of things I find it fascinating There are things in the world that we re so desensitized to but think about the first time someone saw some of these things I don t know how people didn t just have heart attacks on the spot because just tonight I thought I saw some unusual little critter scurry under the porch and you would have thought I just discovered the first land based Loch Ness Monster And it was probably just a fucking chipmunkI went into reading this book thinking I would feel like I feel when I walk into that room at the Walters full of wonder and excitement even though I know everything in that room because I visit it every time I am in Balti now Meh I didn t get that feeling during this readingThe author writes about the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles Basically it sounds like a full size version of the one room I love in the Walters No doubt I would piss myself senseless if I could spend time in the MJT in person but reading about Weschler s experiences with discovering it and his thoughts on things was way less exciting than I wantedThe back cover says Weschler gives us a work of nonfiction that is as allusive as dizzying and as urbanely astonishing as anything by Borges or Calvino The back cover also calls this LiteratureNatural Science So I probably missed the point entirely It was interesting but not that dizzying and I don t like that sort of thing in my nonfiction anyway I read fiction to be dizzied I read nonfiction to learn things Don t fuck with my head while I m reading nonfiction I know this will work for a lot of people it was probably not at all the right time for me to read this one and so it did not necessarily work for meI did learn about this museum from this book which I now want to visit the hell out of because come onIn any case I had no desire to ever visit Los Angeles but now Weschler has given me a reason to maybe possibly want to go Just to visit the MJTMore importantly I really want to go back to the Walters and sit in my favorite chamber for an hour or two

I discovered this little gem amongst the uniue and varied volumes for sale at Viktor Wynd s Little Shop of Horrors in London and just like the shop I found it in I loved it and was utterly confused by it in an immensely good way Upon reading this book you uickly discover that you don t know what is fact and what is fiction and of course what is a little bit of both Weschler takes us into the world of the Museum of Jurassic Technology MJT where he allows us to lose ourselves in the displays and fictional facts and exhibits brought together by the mysterious Mr Wilson over his years of dedication to those objects largely ignored by the mainstream establishments In doing so we find ourselves on a journey through the history of collecting and museums from their origins as the wonder cabinets of old to the isolated and segregated institutions we have today The language is enchanting and engaging and creates a wonderful story weaving fact and fiction and all the possibilities in between together so you are left not really knowing what to believe and thus believing everything The only drawback is that it is over all too soon and I don t live anywhere near the MJT so can only get my fix by re reading this marvellous work

Have you ever wondered if that museum exhibit you are looking at so intently is fake No of course not It s a museum Well perhaps a second look is warranted when the exhibit is found in Mr Wilson s Cabinet of Wonder Many of his exhibits are factual but every so often he sneaks in a fake one and it is your job to figure out which are the fakes Little did I know there is an entire museum subculture out there that specializes in mixing fake exhibits with real ones Some curators like to mess with your mind I guess Unfortunately I found the book to be bloated and at times boring Bloated because it is really a magazine article trying to be a book and boring because it is bloated Don t turn magazine articles into books You can finish this in a day if you are so inclined The whole subculture thing is interesting Mr Wilson is interesting
