Thank you for visiting the southlondonmuseum

excerpt from Chambers Dictionary of Etymology:

muse v. think, meditate. 1340 musen, in Ayenbite of Inwyt; borrowed from Old French muser to ponder or loiter; literally, stay with one’s nose in the air, from muse muzzle, from Gallo-Romance *musa snout, of uncertain origin.

At one time thought to be related to italian musare to stare about, idle, loiter; or the Old French muser was considered to be derived from a lost noun and so on….. MUSE/UM. n.s. [Gr.]A repository of learned curiosities.
