Flugelheim Museum Of Science And Art
Gotham City, Gotham County, Gotham, USA
The Flugelheim Museum Of Science And Art was founded in 1842 as part of the Flugelheim Academy for the Advancement of Science and Art by George Charles Flugelheim. After the Metropolitan Museum of Art it is the second largest museum in the USA and one of the twenty largest museums in the world with many significant scientifical and artistic collections. It is located on the eastern end of the Robinson Park along the Robinson Park East street.
Represented in the permanent collection are works of art from classical antiquity and Ancient Egypt, paintings and sculptures from nearly all the European masters, and an extensive collection of American and modern art. The Flugelheim also maintains extensive holdings of African, Asian, Oceanic, Byzantine, and Islamic art and the lagest collection of Apkanis artifacts in the USA. The museum is also home to collections of musical instruments, costumes and accessories, and antique weapons and armor from around the world. It also homes the library of the Flugelheim Academy.
The museum regularly hosts notable special exhibitions, often focusing on the works of one artist that have been loaned out from a variety of other museums and sources for the duration of the exhibition. These exhibitions are part of the attraction that draw people to explore the Flugelheim. Such exhibitions include displays especially designed for the Costume & Fashion Hall, paintings from artists from across the world, works of art related to specific art movements, and collections of historical artifacts. Exhibitions are commonly located within their specific departments, ranging from American Decorative Arts, Arms and Armor, Drawings and Prints, Egyptian Art, Medieval Art, Musical Instruments, and Photographs. Typical exhibitions run for months at a time and are open to the general public. Each exhibition provides insight into the world of art as a transformative, cultural experience and often includes a historical analysis to demonstrate the profound impact that art has on society and its dramatic transformation over the years.
The Flugelheim works in close cooperation with the Flugelheim Academy on applied research and science and the museum publishes most of the research papers of the professors and students of the Academy. It also publishes his own periodical magazine the times a year, the Flugelheim Applied Science And Art Bulletin.
