Unformatted Museum

We have somehow got used to looking at the next film from Monino either Hodynki, muttering to kommenntariyah, "do not store, do not take care, do not appreciate," zapamyatyvaya with all this, that at least some technical museum, and even more museum Aviation, there is not an easy thing, very expensive, requiring a large and constant work. In the absence of all this, at least some, the most beautiful and Technology Museum very rapidly converted in the ordinary dustbin of rusted metal. We often think that it is only our Aviation Museum are similar polusvalki — is not so far away, and in the West, even in the most serious and status museums, exhibits can meet even dreaming about cleaning and touch-up, not to mention the restoration. What we talk about various museums where everything rests on the hands of enthusiasts and moderates, donations of benefactors.

Anyone who has traveled to Oshkosh from Chicago on 41 th road, probably remembers that on the border of Illinois and Wisconsin, to the left on the movement, perfectly visible from the highway small fenced field, completely cluttered airplanes, trucks, helicopters and tanks. From the road it looks more like some kind of backyard recycling facility or parking area is very used cars for parts — but in fact it was all personal war museum, which we did not fail to visit. So, Russel Military Museum, Russel, IL. At the entrance to the museum building meets us tank M-3 Stuart.

Se lo museum in the American heartland. Despite the razderbanennost and neglect more exhibits to look at the whole thing was very curious, and the absence of certain parts made it possible to examine the exhibits in detail. The purpose of the existence of such a museum is not very clear, was to ask some, the uncle who sold us the tickets was out, and we continued on its own path.
And I realized that I like the dump.
