Natuurhistorisch Museum (Natural History Museum)
Natuurhistorisch Museum (Natural History Museum) Review
Located in a historic villalike structure with an enormous glass wing (echoing the hip Kunsthal next door), the Natural History Museum challenges its visitors with skeletal glimpses of creatures you'll be hard put to identify. As soon as you enter the foyer, you are face to face with a mounted scary-hairy gorilla. It doesn't stop there: in one room the skeleton of a giraffe stretches as far up as you can crane your own neck. Continue on to be met by a tiger and arching elephant tusks. There is an "ironic" re-creation of a trophy hunter's display, with turtles mounted on a wall, arranged according to size. In another area, a dinner table is set, with the skulls of a human, a cow, an anteater, a lion, a zebra, and a pig as guests. Before each of them is a plate laden with their respective dining preferences. Children, meanwhile, are drawn to the 40-foot-long skeleton of a sperm whale.
