Dead Animal Zoo by Ann Treacy

Last weekend we went to the Natural History Museum – aka dead animal zoo. The Natural History Museum has been closed for a few years because (sadly) a staircase collapsed while some teachers were taking a tour. So that was a sign that maybe they should fix up the place a bit.

It’s kind of a funny place. It’s home to a ton of stuffed animals – real taxidermy animals. The first floor is filled with Irish animals – that where I got the great picture of the basking shark. (I have a whole new interest in basking sharks after hearing someone speak about them at the Science Gallery a couple months ago.) Upstairs are animals from all over the world.

I was in the Natural Science Museum years ago – I remember it being very dusty – but I have to say it’s not dusty at all after the big clean up. It’s still kind of a funny place. I’ve tried to include some typical poses. We wanted to include a few of the more gruesome for Grandma and Molly. Its’ definitely the stuff of nightmares!
