Museums are experiencing a global popular revival and this has just, as much to do with the fact that museums are often housed in spectacular building situated in the very best locations throughout the city. This realisation has resulted in more and more museums opening up their doors to more than just exhibitions.
Which got me thinking of a lecture I once attended, on why culture is important. Giving his view, the Cultural editor for our leading financial paper, explained to his mainly male audience, that culture is important, because it gives you something to talk about, when trying to impress the opposite sex, at the dinner parties! Signalling cultural sensitivity is in other words a powerful aphrodisiac, guaranteed to instantly impress.
This being the case, may we suggest a double whammy and take it to the next level? How about organising your next dinner party IN a museum? That way you can let the walls do the talking and you can concentrate on the food and the charming company.
Take for example Thorvaldsens Museum in the centre of Copenhagen. Thorvaldsen was and probably still is Scandinavia’s most famous sculpturer. Born in modest surroundings he rose to become a hugely accomplished and fêted artist, spending most of his life in Rome, from where he produced masterpieces that you can see all over Europe.
Returning to Copenhagen late in life he was given a hero’s welcome and a museum dedicated soley to him was built right next to the Parliament buildings; and now the perfect setting for an entertaining and passionate evening!
