Below one of the photos that impressed me the most… New crop varieties are grown and tested in the Geneva Greenhouses at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station. Crop scientists race to create climate-change-resilient agriculture. As droughts, extreme rainstorms, and other erratic weather patterns intensify, farmers need crops that can cope with such stress.

EYE Film Museum
What you will find here: This museum has a permanent exhibition, that is the history of film and how it has been developing from times to time until the modern days we are living where we all have become filmmakers with our smartphones. They also have a temporary exhibition, in this occasion was from Hito Steyerl, Ben Rivers, Wang Bing, which was a series of digital art films presented in many rooms that were accommodated with bean bags, chairs or sofas.
How much time should you plan to stay? I spent one hour there, but if you see in google, the approx. time they give you is 3 hours, very extreme difference. After visiting I understood why. There are some booths where you can select movies to watch and also this other room where you can watch mini clips of famous classical movies, plus this place is also a movie theater. So it really varies from people to people, if you want to go and have the full experience and search for and watch your favorite classic films, you can take your time.
