    The 2 major displays are Aphrodite and Ares but unfortunately the lighting was a wierd bluish light mixed with tungsten down light.

    Many thanks shianghan27 for the info - this time for the correct info. Dunno if the earlier info regarding photography correct or our Museum has changed it's policy. Whatever it is, it is GOOD NEWS.

    Certainly, I wanna to go shoot all the statues la, as the TS.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    Many thanks azul for sharing. I was not that keen in going becos of "No Photo" policy. But for now, I will wanna to have a go at shooting those pieces of sculptures. I remember I was rather pissed off when I couldn't shoot the Rodin's "Le Penseur" statue when it was in town.

    As neither tripod/monopod nor flash allowed, I guess it must have been pretty challenging in view of the lighting available. Now, this is where those FF cameras with at least 1stop advantage in terms of highISO results. Or, get a prime with F1.8 will do - that is already 1stop better than those F2.8 zooms. And the cheapo 50mmF1.8 comes to mind.

    The reason I went was because I saw CSer post that they now allow cameras though no flash. Glad I went today.

    I was actually very, very near there for lunch this afternoon and I had my camera with me. So, I suppose they have changed their policy of No Photo allowed. I hope that they do not revoke it anytime soon.

    Just back from this morning visit to the Museum - surprise, surprise! Free entry for today and tomorrow, Sunday as a promotion. So, went in FOC and I was like the only one with a dSLR shooting those exhibits.

    Anyway, the entrance fee of $8 ain't expensive for those who are interested. Go and see how Socrates, Aristotle, Homer and so forth look like. This is a fabulous eye-opener for me.
