Watch the video here:  https://youtu.be/xuSdTK4XeoI Overview: I thought Bangalore just had 2-3 museums which are well known until a few years ago, but a little research opened up my thoughts as I discovered several museums within the city. I have decided to visit all the museums in the city and document those.  The first one on the list is the Indian Musical Experience in JP Nagar 7th phase. This beautiful museum is dedicated to the evolution and science behind different forms of music from traditional to contemporary.  As we enter the museum, in the inner courtyard, we can see a sound garden, where we can learn about the sounds created from natural things like wood, stones, and metals. We can try our hand in generating music as well. This area is well enjoyed by both adults and children. We then get inside the museum and the experience starts from the 3rd floor, where we are shown a small animated movie with different types of sound created by nature.

The Netherlands: Ever Surprising

 

Overview:  Amsterdam is known for its open culture and beautiful countryside. We landed at Schiphol airport and took a public transport to our hotel in Monnickendam which is around 15 kms north of Amsterdam city centre.
We started early next day by exploring the lovely countryside. The weather was playing a bit funny though with sun, clouds and rains making their appearance one after the other. We took our chance with biking along the countryside covering Volendam. We also visited a traditional cheese making unit. The workers traditionally wear the wooden shoes or Clogs called "Klompen".
Our biking continued as we passed through narrow country roads, canals and old windmills. A relaxing session concluded as we biked all the way back to our hotel.
        

Our next programme was to visit the city of Amsterdam. Known for its "Coffee shops" and Sex shops, we made a way into the Red Light district and had an amazing unique experience. Though its legal to buy and smoke Marijuana in Amsterdam but its illegal once one leaves the Netherlands. So have to make sure one buys and smokes it within the country.
Apart from these attractions, Amsterdam is also known for its canal system with many operators offering canal cruise through the tourist attractions in the city. The major attractions in the city are Van Gogh's museum, Rijksmuseum, Madame Tussauds and several other architectural structures.
