It’s always hard to go back to work after a long summer break. Though one feels rested and recharged, it’s however, a heavy task to start working again. Anyhow, it’s also encouraging that my job always commence with mind and body programs like workshops and social activities. I always look forward to our small trips, which includes plays and games at times. We had our kick-off last week and as usual, it ended with a teachers’ trip, this time, to three different museums in Gothenburg. Get to know each of them here.
The Glasbruksmuseet (Glass Works and Museum) in Surte shows glass and bottles made in an old-fashioned way. Here, we find old pilsner and perfume bottles. Really interesting to see how glass and bottles developed and improved from the past to the present time.
I had no idea what was in this museum because its name doesn’t suggest anything but the name of a place. It’s called the Lödöse Museum in Lilla Edet Municipality. But the moment the guide showed us our way inside, I was impressed by what I saw. The archaeological finds of the Middle Ages! All things medieval suddenly become real to my eyes, which otherwise, most of us have only seen and read in school books.
Geez whiz! How easy it is to hang ones self these days. This Repslagarmuseet (Rope Museum) has all kinds and sizes of ropes. We saw how the machine from 1920’s ran and patched ropes. After the tour, I bought a keyring made of rope, for I know I can’t hang myself with it.
It was, indeed, both educative and a pleasure to visit these museums. I would like to end this post with a question: What is this rope made of?
