Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Where else can you read Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein's notes, interviews and manuscripts relating to the Watergate scandal, see the sunglasses that Gloria Swanson wore in the 1950 movie Sunset Boulevard, view one of only 21 complete copies known to exist of the Gutenberg Bible, marvel at the first successful permanent photograph from nature taken in 1826 and examine selected costumes, script drafts, storyboards and audition media from David O. Selznick's Gone With The Wind collection? It's all here--and much more--in the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin. Located at 300 West 21st Street, on the UT Austin campus, it is an internationally known humanities research center, an archive, library and museum that specializes in the collection of literary and cultural artifact from the Americas and Europe for the purpose of advancing the study of the arts and humanities. Established in 1957, it is open from 10 to 5 Tuesday through Friday and noon to 5 on Saturday and Sunday. It houses five million literary manuscripts, one million rare books, five million photographs and more than 100,000 works of art. Other extraordinary holdings on display include Albert Einstein's unpublished notes and calculations for his work on general relativity, three copies of William Shakespeare's 1623 First Folio plays, one of only 23 copiesw known to exist of a suppressed 1865 first edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the papers of Robert De Niro, David O. Selznick and Gloria Swanson, unused props designed by Salvador Dali to have been used in the dream sequence of the 1945 film Spellbound, a complete set of Pablo Picasso's 1930-1937 Vollard Suite, Edgar Allan Poe's writing desk, John Wilkes Booth's personal production promptbook for Richard III, David Garrick's diary from his 1751 trip to Paris, which once belonged to Harry Houdini, a writing journal kept by Jack Kerouac in preparation for writing his classic On the Road in 1957 and the love letters of the ill-fated Mexican Emperor Maximilian I and his wife Carlota. All that's missing is a letter from Julius Caesar to Cleopatra.

hey, it was free and air conditioned. It was really small and had a few interesting pieces highlighting their featured exhibit. It was not laid out great and you were not sure what to read first. Like I said it was free and was air-conditioned. It is a short visit (we were there for less than 30 minutes) also has a bathroom and water fountain.

The statements that "The Ransom Center acquired the self-portrait in 1965 as one of a large collection of artworks assembled by photographer Nickolas Muray (American, b. Hungary, 1892–1965), who purchased the painting from Kahlo. The collection, known as the Nickolas Muray Collection of Mexican Art, includes two other works by Kahlo—the 1951 Still Life with Parrot and Fruit and a 1930 drawing, Diego y Yo, inscribed by Kahlo to Muray—as well as a number of works by other Mexican artists active in the first half of the twentieth century." about a "large collection" and "two other works" led us to believe that that's exactly what they had but we were exceptionally disappointed to find that they only had the one Kahlo and that stuck down a corridor not even in a featured display.

So unless you are keen to see an early bible or an almost non-existent first photograph, do not go out of your way to visit, as we did, because you will be in and out in 10 minutes and feel like you wasted your time.

I used to live in NYC, saw the Gutenberg Bible at Morgan Library, but that would have cost $40 with two kids. I got to show it to them for free. Plus the Niépce Heliograph and Frida Kahlo self portrait. Well worth the visit. We were in and out in 20 minutes.

Great permanent presentation of Gutenberg Bible, as well as the first photograph. The rest of museum is dedicated to a noted author/artist. Worth a visit and free.

The museum portion of the Harry Ransom Center has three items worth seeing - a Gutenberg Bible, the first photograph (not much to look at) and a Frida Kahlo self-portrait. They were setting up for a new temporary exhibit when I was there, and the only other items on display were a dozen posters for early 20th Century magician shows, including several from Houdini’s own collection. It all took about 15 minutes to see. It’s a free museum, so that’s fine, but you’ll want to make sure there are things there you want to see if you are going out of your way to visit.

This museum contained one of the original Gutenberg Bibles... truly amazing to see. We also enjoyed an exhibit called "The Rise of Everyday Design" and "The Art of the Craftman Style". And it's FREE!

We had the opportunity to visit The Harry Ransom Center as part of our St. Marks School Trip with more than 40 kiddos. The museum is a sort of archive, library and museum at the same time located at University of Texas. It specializes in the collection of literary and cultural artifacts from the United States, Latin America and Europe for the purpose of advancing the study of the arts and humanities. Their center houses 36 million literary manuscripts, one million rare books, five million photographs, and more than 100,000 works of art.

The Center has a reading room for scholars and galleries which display rotating exhibitions of works and objects from the collections. It also has a special exhibit for one of The Original “Gutenberg Bible” also known as the “Mazarin Bible”. The Bible was among the earliest major books printed using mass-produced movable metal type in Europe. The book was purchased for more than $2.5M. It is an edition of the Vulgate printed in the 1450s in Latin by Johannes Gutenberg in Mainz, in present-day Germany. Forty-nine copies (or substantial portions of copies) have survived. They are thought to be among the world's most valuable books, although no complete copy has been sold since 1978. It marked the start of the "Gutenberg Revolution" and the age of printed books in the West.. We had a fantastic time in the museum and the staff was really helpful and welcoming. Our kiddos had a very enriching time.
