The Bait and Switch/ Museum of London's Fire!Fire!

Creators Note: Here around EG life has caught up with us a bit. We've tried to plan ahead, blog ahead, wishful thinking ahead...but you know. If you've been reading the blog for any amount of time you are sure to know that these last two months have been difficult for Seven of Ten and I. So, we are going to Beta Test something over the next few months.

The last thing we want EG to become is one of those blogs that you find a link to on Pinterest and then...done. You go to their last blog post and it was on a random Tuesday in 2012. We don't want to take advantage of your readership, loyalty, or expectations.

Sooooo, here's what is about to happen. We are going to be posting twice a week on Tuesdays & Fridays! One week we will be covering Art & History or Cosplay and the next week we will post on Frandom or Home Life. We will always cap off the week with a #High5 or #5FandomFriday.

Basically, you will be getting the same great content on a slightly smaller scale. Seven of Ten and I  will meet again on the change in the Fall to chat. Then we will decide whether or not to stick with it. Maybe life will lay off of us a bit and we'll be able to get back to three posts a week, but for now...just two. Thanks for your patience and understanding. Much Love!

The Great Fire on London begin on September 2, 1666 and burned for three devastating days. The Museum of London is not going to let the 350th Anniversary go to waste...and I mean, who blames them?

The exhibition is set to open in July is said to help patrons experience London through the eyes of people that were "the London life" during that time.

The exhibition is slated to have children's display that are interactive for the youngsters. I love this! I know it sounds crazy, but working in the museum industry I firmly believe that you if you bring young children to museums during the early years of their life they will continue to be patrons for the rest of their lives. The curators have listed: walking along Pudding Lane and evaluating ordinary London life in the 17th century, visit the bakery where the fire started and spread across the city, identify real objects melted by the fire, and hear the rarely told personal accounts by Londoners affected by the disaster.

They also have quite a variety of fine art pieces to be included in the exhibition that depict the city of London burning. One of the items to be exhibited during the Fire!Fire! Exhibition is a restored 17th century fire engine.

If you are in London any time during the Fall makes sure to check out his interesting & historic exhibition at the Museum of London! 

Seven of Ten will see you on Friday for a #5FandomFriday! Until then, and as always, stay exceptionally chic & exquisitely geek!
