Blog: that time we took a turn into Narnia [Sep. 20th, 2015|02:06 pm]

Last year before Coalescaremonium, Bert and I discovered the Cinquantenaire Museum by chance. We had wandered around a little, and decided we would go back later this year to do photos for BCM. Lora, who also likes museums and doesn't mind posing, came along too :)
I used to say that the V&A in London is my favourite museum, but it's definitely been replaced by the Cinquantenaire :)

The painting had a print of a threatening sea that people were pointing at. The print on my dress is called Nightmare Rising, and it's inspired by the story where Cthulhu comes out of the sea. Hence us being goofy like that by that painting.

Anyway, we picked up Lora at the local train station, drove to Etterbeek, parked at the Coalescaremonium venue (Bouche à Oreille), which is pretty much around the corner and only a 5 minute walk. Because it was nearly noon, we decided to eat the lunch we brought in the car ^^
And then we went into the museum and went straight for the monumental hall to take photos for the next BCM.

We had a look in the smaller hall next door

We decided to have a look upstairs, and felt like we had walked into Narnia. Well the Narnia of the first film, because the hallway was full of royal sleds!

There was also a side room full of clocks and other fun bits.

We wanted to find the Egyptian section, which is the ONLY section not properly indicated in the museum or on the map, so we went back downstairs. And ran into Laurens (who is in Artifakt with Lora and I) who had popped in to use the toilet. He was outside at the Coalescaremonium picnic, which we were attending later.


First we passed by the totem pole.

We took the wrong stairs up, so we ended up in the Thailand section instead. Which was also cool and interesting.

We went up the right stairs eventually, and had to pass by Greece first.

Before we finally found Egypt!

And after that, it was quite late in the afternoon already, so we decided to go join the Coalescaremonium picnic in the park outside, but more about that tomorrow :)
