This paper is a shot cut analysis of the past; present and future of National Museums; seen from a Deleuzian point of view. I will try to answer the question of understanding and defining museums and their changing role through some of the considerations Deleuze has had in relation to life in general and it’s potential for having a dynamic impact. According to Deleuze life is ‚Äúquestioning power‚ÄĚ. All products of humanity; including Museums; are answers to the ‚Äúproblematizing‚ÄĚ force of life. A good museum pays homage to the power of life in all its aspects. For an excellent introduction to Deleuzian thought see: Claire Colebrook: Gilles Deleuze; Routledge Critical Thinkers; Routledge; London and New York; 2002.
