Nature and Human Inheritance 

Museums reveal you the past expressed by carefully collected objects and memories you possibly never heard of. Spend some time to cherish this “inheritance” from humanity and nature….

     Whenever I travel, visits to local museums are on top of my priority list. We all know the famous, well publicized ones.

Who did not hear about Louvre, British Museum, Prado, MET, Smithsonian, Ermitage ….and the list goes long, very long.

But not many of us ever heard of nor had a chance to visit countless local museums, and their list is by far the longest one.

They all help us to keep in touch with the “greatness” of the past times, heroism of individuals known by names but more often forgotten or anonymous, objects of human ingenuity, thoughts and ideas memorized in written texts….

So embarking on this tour of unknown museums in pictures, please cherish the "frozen time": look at memorabilia, read the accompanying stories and feel the spirit of the past time hanging around….
In my personal notes I found this beautifully expressed thought I want to share with you:

Learn to be quite enough to hear the sound of the genuine within yourself so that you can hear it in others.

Marian Wright Edelman

I would say, it will also greatly help us to “tune to the past” and then to hear, see, learn and treasure the best from it.

To discover the secrets of whistling in La Gomera – a unique and very powerful language developed by inhabitants of this island visit: Whistling in La Gomera

While it will not be a visit to the museum in the strict sense, it is a visit to the past protected as part of the Human Heritage by the UN. A kind of a “Living Museum”.

Free Old Cars Pictures

Also this is not the museum in the strict sense, rather the living one in front of your eyes. However the old cars on Havana streets have everything a good "automobile museum" may dream about. Not Replicas, but real "dinosaurs" remembering really old times.... Enjoy the visit by clicking:

Buenos Aires Botanical Garden - Open Art Gallery

The Buenos Aires Botanical Garden is literally dotted with beautiful stone, marble and bronze sculptures made by renowned Argentinean and foreign artists.

Among these the most notable is the marble sculpture “Los Primeros Frios” by the famous Catalan artist Miquel Blay Fábregas for which he received recognition at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900 and later a “Gold Medal” in Barcelona.....

Colonia Antigua Museums - Uruguay

Colonia del Sacramento is a place where you can calm your body and mind.......

To read more about this "frozen in time" city of Colonia Antigua and see it on pictures please follow the link:
Colonia del Sacramento 

It is a small town located in Uruguay across the Rio de la Plata from Buenos Aires. A one-hour trip by speedboat from Puerto Madero takes you few centuries back to an old Portuguese town where the time seems to have stopped.

Everything here runs at much slower pace, and the streets, buildings and the very atmosphere are immediately reminiscent of the distant past.

On the picture - a landmark street in Colonia – the Calle de los Suspiros (Street of Sighs).

This typical Portuguese street is paved with its original cobblestones and is shaped to direct rainwater down to the river.

Flanked by similarly old but colorful houses, the street, despite its apparent state of “disrepair,” has on overwhelming charm that instantly brings one a sense of peace....
