Hercules California Museums

The flying boat, better known as the Spruce Goose, has caused a headache in McMinnville, Oregon, the museum it houses. It was dismantled, dismantled and shipped from its original home at the Evergreen Museum, where it had been on display as a star attraction since 2001, to its current home in the Pacific Northwest.

The statues of the Farnesians were brought to Naples in 1787, together with a large part of the Farnesian collection, and are now on display in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale. Most of the treasures in the collection have been transferred to the Worcester Art Museum and remain open to the public, but "the concern when a museum is in financial difficulty is the collection," Bell said. He hopes the museum will not suffer the same fate as his former home in Worcester, Mass., but he is not optimistic.

The California State Museum in San Diego and other museums and galleries in Los Angeles and San Francisco report an increase in visitors since the shuttle was decommissioned and the orbiter was on display. The California Museum of Natural History in Santa Cruz, California, which was purchased in 1864 and now houses most of its collection. His collection covers the entire history of the United States, from the Civil War to World War II to the space shuttle program.

While his collection is the main attraction of the villa, the fascination of my visit was the architecture of the villa itself. In the corner of a second floor of this villa is a small room dedicated to Roman Egypt, which displays famous portraits and mummies from the Greco-Roman period in Egypt. The chapel contains a statue of Hercules of Lansdowne, discovered in 1864 during a visit to the California Museum of Natural History in Santa Cruz, California.

Napoleon noted that this was the most critical gap in his collection and has been since. Hercules is also an early figure of ancient Roman coinage, but Napoleon's discovery of the statue of Hercules in the late 18th and early 19th centuries was the "most critical gap" in his collections. The European imagination, the heroic representation of Hercules, fixed the image of a mythical hero and made him the central figure of ancient Greece and Europe.

On 22 September, Greek officials announced that they had agreed to return three other artifacts to Greece: a marble slab from Perga, Greece, dating back to the fifth century BC, and a bronze bust of Hercules from Athens. The bust of Hercules was illegally removed in the 1980s and Perges is part of a private collection of the Greek National Museum in Athens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Summa Corporation donated the historic Hughes Racer, which set a world record for the race in 1935 and 1937, and made it one of eight public museums selected from a Smithsonian list. Evergreen beat off competition to exhibit the 400,000-pound monster by promising that the flying boat would be housed in a "world-class museum and kept in one piece," said the museum's retired director, Dr. John E. Hirsch, a former president and chief executive.

It was a quiet morning on the day we visited and we had the opportunity to talk about the work of Hercules Segers and to stroll through the well-kept gardens and bronze production found in the actual Villa dei Papiri. If you have little time in the area, you can spend the morning touring the museum's collection of bronze statues, sculptures and other artifacts, or doing the evergreen in one day.
