Aquarium by Packard VS Aquarium by Bong


I am watching the sci fi dystopia movie by the Korean filmmaker Bong Joon Ho, Snowpiercer.

There’s a scene where they visit the fancy sushi bar cum archive. Reminds that Stanford and Jordan liked this kind of thing. (Also, Wiggins, Thomas et cetera).

The Packard Foundation created the amazing Monterey Aquarium. Our only quibble is that there seems to be loud upbeat music in the floors, to stimulate children.

Did the Packards imagine a day when this was an important specimen archive, accessble only to elites?
