Essay, Serial


Museums, Education, Government

    Considers the 'rise and progress' of the South Kensington Museum to be 'very curious' considering that it is 'a consolidation of old institutions' rather than a 'new creation of Government' (70). Explains the components of the gallery of science, including the Royal Dublin Society, the School of Mines, and the Industrial Museum of Ireland. Describes the initial independence then amalgamation of these institutions.
