Craig Turp who wants to make Bucharest a better place discusses in his magazine how foriegn visitors can be better treated and my heart sinks. The tests for really interesting respectable museums are: charming dinginess; no notices in English; no curators who speak English; above all being child-unfriendly. Bucharest's museums still thank God pass these tests as does the National Archaeological Museum in Naples and the Egyptian Museum Cairo but in Bucharest's case not I fear for long. They are doomed to become, probably courtesy of EU funding part of that most depressing thing, the entertainment industry.
