Rockhound

I have some more from the Museum of Nature's Earth Gallery today, taken during my Canada Day visit.


Another area deal with the metamorphosis of rock, and an interactive activity lets you fiddle around with a video projection of your own face. I've shown you this before in a theme day post, and figured I'd have a go at it again.


A final feature in this gallery that I like is a replicated cave that has been installed. I will come back to the Museum at some point for a proper go through- I can tell you that on Canada Day, this place is exceedingly busy. With a whole lot of kids. Have I mentioned I'm not fond of children?

  7. They find some very colorful stuff in the earth's crust. No wonder people become fixated on looking for colorful minerals.

  11. Beautifully shown William, here and last post. The earth is rich with minerals and humans seem to be happy destroying the earth to get at them 😶

  18. I don't have any but I love to look at rocks. Those interactive games must be fun to do. Another great look at one of your museums. I could get lost in those and not come out for hours and hours. Have to confess to waiting to go back to ours at a quieter time.
