Default Re: "Energetica" museum in Amsterdam

I share Jeffery's opinion over who invented what. I visited the Musee des Arts & Metiers last year. A fine display of marine chronometers but not a mention of Harrison.

In much the same way as when visiting Epcot in Florida I saw a large plaque giving credit to inventors around the world. The invention of TV was accredited to Farnsworth. Possibly rightly, but not a mention of our John Logie.
