Very realistic, a little creepy. Reconstruction of Tjeby, ancient Egyptian.

This was during the lovely spring break when we took a little visit to the Melbourne Museum. I thought it was amazing. I've never been to a museum that interested me at every turn. Located right next to the Royal Exhibition Building seen here, the modern architecture museum is nothing short of spectacular.

From the the largest animals to the tiniest creatures on earth, humans to insects, bones the size of your head and smaller than pins or needles. Everywhere you looked there was always something interesting. I especially enjoyed the interactive aspects to it. You not only could see, touch, hear and even smell! Everything was so mentally stimulating and I can't wait to go back again!
