The Two Towers - A J. R. R. Tolkien Museum Trail Mount Doom by Alan Chapman The Two Towers is the second filmic instalment of J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy book trilogy, The Lord of the Rings. In 2001 our first Tolkien Trail transported us on a perilous journey through Tolkien's Middle Earth. A world of hobbits, wizards, evil sorcerers, orcs, elves, goblins, and many other weird and wonderful inhabitants. After numerous hardships, heart-stopping retreats from Black Riders, not to forget a particularly nasty episode inside the Mines of Moria - we were finally able to return to the peace and tranquillity of the Shire. However, alarming news has recently reached Hobbiton that the forces of darkness are regrouping. And so it is that the 24 Hour Museum finds itself embarking once more on the Tolkien Trail. So, take up the quest, or prepare for the dark shadow of Mordor to engulf Middle Earth for evermore. Our journey starts in the far north, in the desolate Misty Mountains - an area more commonly known in this day and age as northwest Scotland.

Google When I was growing up, my dad had the best job I could possibly imagine: he was an arcade game and pinball technician. For me, that meant summer trips through Poland’s coastal cities with their seasonal arcade parlors; peeking inside cabinets to learn programming and engineering secrets; and—of course—free games! One of my favorites was PAC-MAN, whose popularity transcended the geopolitical barriers of that time. Today, on PAC-MAN’s 30th birthday, you can rediscover some of your 8-bit memories—or meet PAC-MAN for the first time—through our first-ever playable Google doodle.
