I’ve been debating whether to write up the Witte so early in my blog. There are only, like, 11 museums in the city, and that’s including Barney Smith’s Toilet Seat Art Museum, the Magic Lantern Castle Museum, and the US Army Medical Department Museum, all of which are already better covered by other sites (including Atlas Obscura) than I think I could do myself. So, since I’ve already covered two of the eight remaining museums, I was considering writing up the Witte later, particularly since there are something like 200 city parks (and that’s not counting county parks, parks of suburbs that are contained within the borders of the city, or state and national parks that are in or near the city), and I’ve only written up, by my count, five of them.
On the other hand, I will be doing two writeups on the Witte. They’re in the process of a major remodel which won’t be done until sometime in 2017, so I will do one on the history of the museum and its current status and then another in another year or so on the finished museum.
So, should I do a park or two (or, you know, seven) and get those out of the way, or do Witte Museum Part 1?
I have to go to bed now, so I’ll sleep on this for tonight. I can’t wait to see what I decide to do.
