Throughout this series thus far, you have seen pictures of the Churches and the monuments, of the road trips, and even those of the bizarre creatures and the futuristic buildings from Valencia. On the 8th days, we dedicated the entire Sunday touring museums in Madrid.
Cynthia and I love to spend time inside a museum. I reckon if we spend enough time inside museums, we could sharpen our sense of art appreciation. I am not sure how museums are run in Singapore (perhaps we shall explore). In Spain, Audio Guide rental services are provided. We think Audio Guide is a wonderful innovation. It is a headset that comes with a keypad. At a given location, observe the numeric label besides the artwork, punch in the numbers, and listen to the commentary playback through the headset in the language of your choice. We have learned how to appreciate cubism and realism. And we have also learned what questions to ask when admiring art models in 3D.
As always, below are the options you may wish to read more about our trip.
