Museum closed for renovation :(

40/52 for the group 52 in 2013

 

The theme was: What makes me sad

 

I wanted to show my husband the Natural History museum in Oxford because I thought he'd like it. I was sad to discover that it was closed while they did repairs on the wonderful glass roof. :(

 

The Pitt Rivers museum was open and they had moved some of the natural history exhibits into the space around the main exhibition hall, so there was still plenty to see, but unfortunately not most of the fossils and minerals. We did manage to glimpse these animal skeletons through a gap in the barrier, all wrapped up in plastic to protect them.
