"By the time of her death, she had...300,000 objects in all..." I see now, the difference between hoarding and collecting may be how much money you leave behind to deal with the aftermath. I'm glad to see Margaret's compulsion turned into enjoyment for others, likely true of many (almost all?) museums.

I'm always amazed at how many interesting places there are to visit. This very much sounds like my kind of attraction and I had no idea it existed. Some of the most interesting places I've visited are those which display the collecting hobbies of the very wealthy, such as the Getty Museum and Villa.
