History, naturally

I spent a whole day on Friday wandering though the Natural History Museum. This is an old-school museum; specimen upon specimen in row after row of cabinets in salon after salon. I know that modern curatorship is about the experience and narrative, but there's no substitute for quantity.

Check out the gallery!

The absolute highlight of the collection is the Venus of Willendorf:

As far as I know, it's the oldest statue in the world...
