The Thermos Museum is a comedic but also edifying experience; suitcases unfold to reveal numerous astonishing displays. However, the public are not free to reign: visitors are escorted around the museum by the mysterious and disenchanted Tour Guide. Digression seems to rule over Flask information. Truths are blurred, and the concept of a museum is played with. The exhibits are presented in themed tableaux, such as “Thermos at War” (featuring audio-visual effects) and “Flasks of the world” (uniquely educational).
The Thermos Museum is situated in the Summerhall Courtyard throughout the festival. Tours are Wed-Sat, 5th-31st August, 2pm and 3pm, Tour duration : 30mins. Find out more at summerhall.co.uk/2015/the-thermos-museum/
