Prolonged museum visits require preparation, both intellectual and aesthetic, sturdy and comfortable shoes, good health generally, adequate hydration and caffeination, regular rest and restoration (food) breaks, and an ample sense of humor. Warning: this post may contain material offensive to your religious/sexual/political/other orientation, if any.
