The Best Museum in the World ever

One of my favourite things to do when I was off school sick as a kid was to create a museum in my bedroom and then charge my parents and my sister 10p to come in. 10p to essentially look at a labeled selection of my possessions. A level of business acumen I had obviously lost when I decided to become an actor...

Anyway, I haven't yet been to the Museum of Everything or the Johnson Museum of the Odd (though I have been to Pitt Rivers in Oxford, which is awesome) but the best museum I have ever encountered has to be Dennis Severs House near Brick Lane in London.

Dennis Severs, an artist, brought the house in the 70's and created the home of the ficticious Jervis family from the 18th and 19th century. Walking through it is as though you're chasing the past and its inhabitants...

At Christmas they recreate Christmas past with their Silent Night events... GO! Take everyone you know! It's SO GOOD!
