A wee tale of two museums and their bags
A simple merchandise bag with clever artful advertising—a souvenir in itself—and only a few pence in the UK (which has retailers charge for them to encourage folks to bring their own bags which are used over and over saving the planet from choking on trash).
This bag, of course, came from the FAST Museum—the original grounds of British aviation development. Artful and clever in design.
There is no image of a similar bag from the IWM–Duxford—that massive museum complex of world-class calibre. Why is that? Well…they do not have merch bags for a few pence but they do for about £2 and are the type meant to re-use in shopping, with fancy design on them to be sure. Seemingly, it appears to be all about the money. So, if you don’t want to purchase a merch bag there wear clothing with many pockets 😉
Make sure to go to the FAST Museum, though 😉
