It would have been nicer with Natalya Simonova

In July 2004, I went to Nybro in Sweden with my friends Julius, Carina, Marcus and Zac.


We had a pleasant fright - sorry - flight in the car down to this newly opened James Bond related exhibition.

After checking the place out, I quickly realized it wasn't anything I hadn't seen before. Plus, mostly items from generous sponsors who probably wanted to be seen along with 007.

I asked the proprietor if he had asked for permission to use the 007 logo the way he does, for example on his website and on the building, but said he had not.

The main reason of going was a ride in one of the original BMW Z3's used during the filming of GoldenEye (1995). The guy said he had bought it from The BMW museum in Munich for an unknown amount.

For those of you who want to visit a proper and genuine museum I recommend Beaulieu Motor Museum in the South of England, much more interesting and some really interesting and old items, or equally interesting, The Dezer Collection in North Miami, USA.

In advertisements for the place, the proprietor say that his place is the first James Bond museum in the world but this is not correct. Two places in England have been longer in existence and also fully apply to the terms of being proper and genuine museums (free entry, this guy charges a fee to enter).
