Michael Houlihan, Te Papa’s newly appointed CEO, is currently Director General of Amgueddfa Cymru National Museum Wales.
In a recent post on the Amgueddfa blog Michael talks about his decision to make the big move from Wales to New Zealand:
I was checking out pictures on the Amgueddfa blog of the wildlife and woodlands in the snow at St Fagans the National History Museum.This open-air museum is one of the seven museums that make up Amgueddfa Cymru National Museum Wales.
It might not be very warm or summery here in Wellington right now but spare a thought for everyone over in Britain where the winter conditions have been described as ”glacial”. A note on the St Fagans home page tells visitors that the museum is closed “due to snow and ice”.
Brrrrr…. summer in Wellington not so bad after all?
