Some photos from The World Inside: 125 years of the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, which is bunch of interesting things put on display together. Which there should be more of. I mean, themed exhibitions that draw out meanings about the world and present artefacts within a greater context are good, but sometimes it’s just nice to have a bunch of interesting things in one room.
Unfortunately, said interesting things are mostly in glass display cabinets with lots of small spotlights over head, and if you were to make a list of bad conditions for taking photos in, glass display cabinets with lots of small spotlights over head would have to rate somewhere near the top. Also, it was only a quick visit. But it gives you an idea of the sorts of interesthing things that were there.

So it gets a second photo to admire it’s bigness. (Just imagine it being a darker orange, more like this.)
