Benjamin Franklin invented America, Electricity and the Glass Harmonica.  If you want to see a Glass Harmonica there is one on display in the New Science Museum exhibition Mind Maps: Stories from Psychology opening today.

A North Easterly jaunt took us to the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden. My favourite book when I was  little was Tootles the Taxi.  We didn't have time to stop to say hello to Tootles and his Friends more museums were calling

It was here that https://twitter.com/GrantMuseum were running an obstacle course to raise money for Cancer Research. Didn't have chance to say hello but I did buy a badge to support them.

On our way to the Library and Museum of Freemasonry we had a sample of Pizza and were swore at by an angry old man. Aaarh the Highs and lows of Museum marathoning.

From the Freemasonry Museum the next stop was the British museum of course.   Well not actually. A museum Marathon wouldn't be complete with out a walk down museum street
