The Science Museum - Phobias
21 October 2011
I took my son to London's Science Museum on Monday as it's half term. You could probably live in there for a week and still not see all the great things they have in there, we love it. This visit we ended up in a new gallery and I was attracted by a case full of phobias. They had lots of them in Mason jars. Not to make light of any of these phobias, it must be horrible to have a fear of the colour white or of string! I liked the way they illustrated Decidophobia (fear of decisions) using little dice. Notice also the jar containing the fear of vegetables is placed next to the jar containing the fear of constipation. I guess they do sort of go hand in hand.
