Medieval manuscripts scholar Andrew Dunning posted these pictures showing how the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford is finding new ways to make the drudgery of signage more amusing. I've spotted a few other examples in Germany too, which shows that Old Masters can be a source for continual good humour during these uncertain times.

If any readers of AHN have snaps of other museums doing this, do get in touch.
