Ever wonderful Museum of Childhood.

Did you know?

The museum was founded in 1872 as the Bethnal Green Museum. The iron structure reused a prefabricated building from Albertopolis which was replaced with some early sections of the modern V&A complex. The exterior of the building was designed by James William Wild in red brick in a Rundbogenstil (round-arched) style very similar to that in contemporary Germany.

Thought you didn’t. .

To be locked up in a tower, guarded by her pagan father, and hidden from the world, Saint Barbara took comfort in her secret devotion to the Christian faith. According to a 1483 story, her father Dioscorus left with the Roman army and ordered a tower, bathhouses, and gardens to be constructed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In his absence, Barbara instructed the builders to add a third window to the tower. Upon his return, Dioscorus noticed the extra window and questioned his daughter. Barbara confessed her Christian faith and explained that the three windows represented the holy trinity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So he gave her an ultimatum: his gods or her life. She chose the latter. Her father personally beheaded Barbara, and he was struck dead by lightning instantly.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Though the records of her life were too spurious for the general Roman calendar in its 1969 revision, she is still listed on the Church’s list of saints and hagiographies place her as alive during the third century.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Regarded as the patron saint of artillerymen, gravediggers, architects, miners and masons, Saint Barbara has a feast day of December 4. It was on that day’s eve in 1602 that Spanish explorer Sebastián Vizcaíno sailed into a channel off the coast of California and named it in honor of Saint Barbara. The name was also given to one of the Channel Islands.

Visitors at tonight's Slightly Irreverent Tour were challenged to smell legendary hermit Dugout Dick's homemade shoes, identify coprolite (fossilized dinosaur feces), and gander at the undergarments of Minnie Hitt, the Idaho Falls pioneer for whom Hitt Rd. is named.
