museums are meant to allow the visitor to make a connection. the trend to have "vanity" (or ego) museums is really encroaching on that expectation. consequently, we must adjust in our expectations and/or decide to visit. certainly one must visit once. that was the case with the Fondation Louis Vuitton, and perhaps I should visit again. not that they deserve it, but that it is good to make sure that the first impression still has room to grow. the Frank Gehry building was not an instant win either, but never are his building. yet, as with many things "plunked down" in a place like Paris, the surroundings provide a context to the building, and it makes demands that one should bring a camera for when people are looking to photograph elsewhere.
