INSPIRATION - The Museum of Everything

I visited The Museum of Everything yesterday, it was tucked away in Primrose Hill, with a labyrinth of corridors filled with Sir Peter Blake's personal collection of eccentric pieces which he started when he was 14 years old.
It has funny little notes dotted around amongst the pieces which consist of fairground signs for bearded ladies, 2 headed cows, taxidermy used in the most creative of ways, strange looking dolls and puppets, photos of Tom thumb and his wife, a mini motorised fairground, shell ornaments and lots more from Sir Peter Blake's weird and wonderful collection. Unfortunately I think today was the last day, or this week is the last week, but the museum seems to have had other collections and think it will pop up again. I will definitely be watching out for any other shows this quirky Museum has to offer!
