Every now and then we have to face the facts and take care of our skylights. The sun is after all our great friend here at the museum. And dirty windows keeps our friend out. So it’s just to roll up the sleeves and put on the safetygear and climb up. The windows are big and many and the washing of them takes us a week every time. So we try to keep it to twice a year. We hired these guys doing fönsterputs in Stockholm sweden to teach us about this stuff. Better safe than sorry we always say.
They were running around like little monkeys up there on the roof shining the windows like there was no tomorrow. And the result is stunning. I’m pretty sure the paintings down below are very happy.
