Museums can be wonderful places to take unique images, but they can be tricky as well. There's a huge proliferation of people and other exhibits to act as distracting elements, lighting can be tricky, and it's too easy to fall into 'tourist' mode and just snap away without thought for composition or presentation. That said, sometimes the stars do align and you get to take advantage of the dramatic lighting and rare subject matter. The E-M5 proves itself in low-light again with punchy contrast capturing the underlit skeleton well.
