Anyone for the horse head museum?

Local museums are wonderful places, aren't they? Here the gritlets can source ideas for the doll's house Victorian interior...


Or spend a long time looking at small things under microscopes...


Then contemplate the worldwide moth collection...


And spend a very long time wondering about the horse head.


In fact Shark, Squirrel and Tiger are so engaged at Bedford Museum that everyone is quite sorry the visit ends when we are thrown out at closing time by the lady with the keys, who wants to go home to put up her feet and have a cup of tea.

Grit now thinks that she should target specialist museums around the UK, and possibly around the world in further pursuit of a rounded education.

Where would you go?

Came over to find out if Tiger was OK. Not sure when you lost her, it may have been ages ago, but I see you have her now!

I am totally grossed out by the naval fluff jars.

hi suburbia - i lost tiger down the back of the sofa. then i phoned the police.

if only i could make this stuff up.

and for the fluff, we needed pictures, eh michelle?!

I suspect that the first photo is actually the lounge at 'The Pile'. However I can't find the puffin assault projectile in the picture to prove my theory.

The wooden nickel museum sounds like fun.

Pictures were not necessary, it was the change in colour as it aged that made me retch.

However proof reading before posting comments is necessary. Navel!

Ooooh it's the Xymoglyphic Virtual Museum for me! In fact, I have bookmarked the site to visit later today Thanks Grit ;-)

I can't suggest a museum for you, but I am happy that you found one that enthralled the gritlets so very much.

Maybe they would like Madurodam in The Hague. It's The Netherlands in miniature. Not really a museum, but still...

we discovered the George Musgrove museum in our town recently! it was AWESOME! he was an artist/poet/all sorts of things and did a lot of work in plastic - we were amazed to discover our birthday candle train on display!

they also had greek coins, and 19th centuary newspapers, and diaramas and all sorts of wonderful stuff it was GREAT! and FREE!!!

I sometimes feel like I live in the museum of dirt, so, for a change I am opting for the carrot museum.

I was going to suggest the National Museum of Scotchland or possibly the Museum of Childhood, but something tells me - namely, the links in your post - that the gritlets would be more at home in the Edinburgh Dungeon.
