Silent zoo


Here, usually  people feel a shrine of nature, it has a lot of animals, but is different from the zoo, and other museums, like it was in the center of downtown, but it is particularly silent, this place called the Natural History Museum. I walked on the road more than once a different natural history museum, Paris, Berlin or Florence, Museum of Natural History seems different time perpendicular to the spool of urban civilization, lead you into another section of the city story.
Many Shanghai people still will retain the childhood memory of the first time into a natural history museum, built in an old building near the Bund before because the museum is about to move again this evokes memories of many people. Natural History Museum in the heart of this bustling city fashion high cost of land in the presence of the zoo, like a huge old world and modern contention for the day to let those in a hurry of modern society people can always hear these silent cries for help, and the best experience nature side of it.

Florence Art
Such experience of visiting the Museum of Natural History, if transferred to the romantic literature known Italian, in turn is another unexpected visit experience. Florence Natural History Museum can be visited as a fact, there are two places, one with 12 halls, set up in 1842 by the FILIPPO PARATORE, which has collections from different museums, with plenty of minerals, fossils and plant specimens known. Another more special and wonderful place is taxidermy Museum, originally built for scientific hobby in 1775, the furnishings have a telescope and weather instrument, known as the Astronomical Observatory, after a large collection of the Medici family of scientific collections and associated items, but also because of the acquisition of modern Italy and Africa arachnids specimens content enriched.

Walked into the courtyard and park next to Popoli connected, sun light and beautiful, it used a lot of marble and frescoed halls together semicircle, all suggest that this once beautiful art. But after you visited one after another taxidermy room with fresh and clean atmosphere, then you will see in 1895 a wax figure in this school produced 600 anatomical specimens. Suddenly walked among them, you will feel the the mood at the moment of horror ups.
