Natural History Museum I

Lions, tigers and bears and holy crap Tasmanian devils too!  Three cheers, no wait, four cheers for Ireland for having a free Natural History Museum.  Over by Merrion Square, right next to the Taoiseach's office, (that's the Irish Prime Minister,) there is a fantastic museum.  The first floor is a showcase of indigenous Irish wildlife and the second, third, and fourth floors are wildlife collections from all over the world.

However, they are missing the dodo but then again, aren't we all?


  1. Maybe they have a Dodo upstairs? They have all sorts of exotic fowl on the 2nd floor...

  2. Well, they did have a white rabbit, a walrus, a carpenter and some oysters. However, I did not see a Mock Turtle, a Gryphon or an Alice.

  3. I remember that I saw a Dodo in a museum--maybe it was the Smithsonian? Anyway, it was stuffed and under a bell jar.
