Must Rush ! Mustn't Miss The Mice ...


 
The Peepshow exhibition's been on for six months so I only had myself to blame as I galloped , puffing , across the bridge and round the corner to the Natuurmuseum on the very last afternoon .
As always it was all beautifully staged and children rushed about between Scratch'n'Sniff exhibits ( "Eeeugh Mama , mouse pee smells disgusting !"  "No Mama , rat pee smells worse !!" ) , tiny skeletons  ,


 a large array of lethal antique mousetraps and the biggest stuffed mouse in the world . 






The art exhibition at the entrance was good too , though it did seem slightly tactless to have filled walls with paintings of owls .

 
 
 

Altogether I was glad I'd managed to drag myself away from a very good book , Ian McEwan's The Children Act , to go ... even if I don't seem to have come back alone .

Looks like an intruiging exhibition. That's the first time I have ever heard of scratch'n'sniff used in an exhibition. Where is the museum/gallery?

That's a mouse?! Not a rat?! Yuck.

Would love a scratch'n'sniff exhibition here.

That looks like a great exhibition. The owls do give it a bit of a twist, don't they?

Love the name of the exhibition! I really enjoyed The Children Act too...

Looks like a great exhibition though I wouldn't want the cat here (the one with the, erm, collecting tendencies) to bring home that giant mouse or any of its relatives.

Oh how wonderful! Small skeletons, stuffed rodents ... that's my kind of exhibition! (You're going to think I'm really weird now, aren't you.)
