Went to Garden Museum to see exhibition 'Gnome and Away' to find that most were away. The ten, it may have been less, that were there were lined up in a casket. It was also confusing that it was a part of another exhibition that was a mishmash of all sorts of things including a jumper donated by Alan Titchmarsh. All of this stuff in one room didn't take very long to go around. Though it is housed in a fabulous building and I understand that the place will be closed soon for major refurbishment, so for now seems to be open halfheartedly just to raise money. The garden also seemed to look sorry for itself but maybe it seems better in the summer months, that is if you can get pass all the scattered graves.
It could be an interesting place to visit if organised better. Maybe I'll go back when it re-opens in 2017 but right now it's left a poor impression on me so maybe not.
