KIT has wonderful space, great light and atmosphere and most important very kind and helpful curators. It was wonderful tour, specially interesting because it’s underground – in the tunnel.

Exhibition was about terror. It all started with a volcano which led to series of events in 1816, exactly 200 years ago. Changed lifestyle caused by bad weather made Mary Shelley to create Frankenstein and John Polidori – The Vampyre. It was a time of horror stories.
