Nationale Museumweek 2015 in NEMO 
Maak je eigen ontwerp in 3D en raak ons echte goud aan

DD297322Van zaterdag 18 t/m zondag 26 april vindt de Nationale Museumweek plaats. Een week met als thema ‘Ons echte goud’, waarbij musea hun eigen gouden pronkstuk kiezen.

$1.2 million for Charles Dickens’ Desk

Charles Dickens’ Desk to Go on Permanent Display at Museum

Charles Dickens writing desk and chair for auction by Christie's, London, Britain  - 02 Apr 2008[source] London’s Dickens Museum has received a 780,000 pound ($1.2 million) grant from a government-backed heritage fund to buy the desk at which the 19th-century novelist wrote books including “Great Expectations.”

The desk remained in the Dickens family until it was sold for charity in 2004.

Dickens Museum director Robert Moye said Sunday that the desk and chair, which have been displayed on loan, would become permanent fixtures.

Dickens used the desk during the last years of his life, when he wrote works including “A Tale of Two Cities,” which opens: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”
