For quite a long time we have had a visit to the new Natural History Museum (called the Blue Museum) in our agenda. In fact, since it changed locations from the small but amazingly (in a vintage fashion) building at the Ciutadella Park to the uber modern current location at the Forum premises, surrounded by the latest architecture style.
Natural History Museums always create a magnetism in me, I am torn to visit them and feel like I am at an enchanted place. I think I have never shared this on the blog before, but I was about to study Biology as my bachelor degree, only at the last minute decided against. The head does crazy things sometimes, I guess some part of me was unsure about the type of career I wanted to achieve, and that’s not weird at all, as I’m still struggling to know it.
I had my concerns about the move to the new premises, since the collection was quite small and the main charm (or so I thought) lied in the old building that contained it. I recall it being a super (super!) tiny version of the Natural History Museum of Paris, of some sorts. However, I have to admit that it blowed me away by creating a mystery while playing with the low lights, the blue and all the cabinets containing the collection. The main part of the collection is the bones and taxidermy halls.
Do you enjoy Natural History Museums? Which part of them is your favorite? What is your position with taxidermy in museums?
Hope you liked the pictures that tell the story of the two kiddos (at heart, ha!) visiting the majestic Lion from the Blue Museum!
