More New Museums!

glass-works-museumI often lament that France feels more and more like a museum–it’s beautiful and classic, but backwards in its bloated bureaucracy, turgid politics and social nostalgia. It is ossified to the point where many tourists–I’d say most tourists–come just to look at it, eat great bread, and feel nostalgic. Well, I do like museums. And France will see at least 15 new ones between here and 2019, according to the newspaper Le Figaro. Yet another museum dedicated to perfume will open in Paris, while more far-flung locations will see the likes of an art glass museum. Art Forum has some details in English.
