The visit will be an opportunity for the U.S. president to change his administration's troubled record regarding Holocaust remembrance

On the first anniversary of the carnage, President François Hollande unveiled a memorial plaque and the rock star Sting commemorated the event with a concert (featuring "Petrol Head" and "Inshallah") on the same stage stormed by the killers just a year earlier. But the then-American ambassador to France and Monaco, the Honorable Jane D. Hartley, felt that there needed to be something bigger, something more au courant, but not anything usually associated with those boring memorials to dead people from the past. So she proposed Bouquet of Tulips, a $3 million, 34-feet high, 27-feet wide, 36-ton bronze stainless steel sculpture by Jeff Koons slated for a space near the city’s Museum of Modern Art. Exactly why Hartley thinks she is the arbiter of such a memorial for the citizens of France is unclear. Did she, one wonders, consult with the victimsfamilies or even think about raising the $3 million to help the survivors? The left wing Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, was over the moon about the Koons: "The capital of France," she enthused, "will be happy to welcome the iconic work Bouquet of Tulips, which is intended to become part of Paris heritage.

Harry, from London, had an impressive start to Paddy McGuinness' Take Me Out after he was left with all 30 lights on. However, after a few rounds of elimination, the museum goer was left with either Cara-Jane or Tasha. And after making up his decision of who he was going to take to the legendary Isle of Fernando's, Harry headed over to Cara-Jane. To which he cheekily said: "Shall we go to Fernando's?"

The Blackfeet Indian Reservation rolls across the plains just east of Glacier National Park. There’s a hotel and casino. There are gas stations, a few eateries and a museum about the culture and history of the people that have occupied the territory long before the arrival of the U.S. Cavalry and the hordes of modern-day visitors who roll into the nearby mountains. But despite its proximity to the national park, little of the money spent by tourists ends up in the business tills of reservation’s communities. While Montana might be known internationally for recreational jewels such as Glacier and Yellowstone national parks, Native Americans say the state needs to do more to develop and promote its vast tribal lands as tourist destinations. Some lawmakers want the state to invest more in drawing visitors to places of historical and cultural importance to the state’s Indian tribes, not only to spark entrepreneurship but also help outsiders better understand Native Americans.

SEREMBAN: The Istana Lama Sri Menanti Royal Museum will be closed for three years to facilitate repair and upgrading works being carried out at the premises, Acting Negri Sembilan Museum Board director Aziz Mohd. Gorip said today. He said work on the first phase of the project started in December last year and is scheduled to be ready in May 2018. "After completion of the first phase, the second phase, involving repair of the building, as well as upgrading of the landscape and facilities in the area, will be carried out, and these will take up to one and a half-years to complete. "As such, we expect the museum, which has been declared a national heritage, to be closed for three years," he told Bernama here today. The Istana Lama Sri Menanti Royal Museum is one of the landmarks in Kuala Pilah. It was originally a palace for the Negri Sembilan royal family. The four-storey wooden building was built in 1902, and completed in 1908, using no nails or screws. It has 99 solid timber pillars. — Bernama

A ghost hunt is being held at a Devon museum in May, and you can join the Investigators of the Paranormal team on a spine-chilling ghost hunting night. Held at Torquay Museum, on May 5, the night will be a lights-out investigation of a building with a lot of recent paranormal activity, and its own Ancient Egyptian mummy; not an evening for the faint hearted. From 8pm until late, it will cost you £25 to join the ghost hunt, but previous nights like this at the museum have seen some...

Economically and demographically and culturally, he believes, the damage is done. “We rolled the dice with the future of this country,” he tells me. “And I think it’s going to come up snake eyes.” *** The living room of Buchanan’s home in McLean, Virginia, a wealthy suburb of Washington, could be mistaken for a museum. Between this wood-paneled space and his red-carpeted basement there must be 3,000 books on the shelves, meticulously categorized by genre, author or time period, a classical backdrop to Buchanan’s extensive collection of historical guns (including a rare replica of Robert E. Lee’s revolver) and a lifetime’s accumulation of family photographs, newspaper clippings, campaign keepsakes and miscellaneous relics. His house is a monument to failed uprisings against the political establishment. Above the mantel rests a spectacular painting of Buchanan gazing out a bus window during a ride through scenic Iowa.
