Everybody who took part in this exhibition was invited, so it was quite the crowd. We started in the hall usually used as a planetarium, where a speech was held, a lot of thanks were given and from where we finally started through the exhibition. Of course I made a series of fotos during the evening - my first chance to test out my new camera. *YES* finally some good fotos!
After that I raided the buffet.
So lets have a look at what it looks like:
The entrance hall from the other direction. You can see the great skeleton in the far background. the glowing shilouette at the ceiling shows the size of a blue whale.
One of my boards, the topic for this one is whales and to which animals they are related to.
The next area: The evolution of whales, showing some nice prehistory skeletons.
And onf of my boards of course.
It continous with a wide variety of topics, feeding, different species, a spermwhale and an orca skeleton...
A nicely done river dolphin, a life size whale mouth, more about family bonds,
communication and reproduction
The glowing red part about the insides of a whale. The highlight here is a life-size heart of a blue whale.
The last areas are about whale hunting, endangered species, polluted water and all that nasty stuff. Showing the history of whale hunting, how it affects the populations, what was made of them....
Everyone who is interested in this topic, feel free to visit the museum. Its worth it. ;)
