2019/10/12 Prague's Narodni Technicke Museum
π 2019-10-12 01:01 in Sciencemuseums
While in Prague, I went to check out the local science museum, and it was surprisingly good, worth 4H or 5H if you do the underground mine tour which looks surprisingly believable.

The main hall was transportation with nice displays:













There were lots of other rooms about research and science:




The bottom floor was about mining, and had lots of interesting equipment:










Another floor was about printing presses:




Another room yet on astronomy:


And more rooms I didn't all picture here. Definitely worth a visit.

2019/02/08 Sciences de Montreal
π 2019-02-08 01:01 in Sciencemuseums
While it's not a top science museum, and while it has a weird layout and unused space, there are some fun displays that took a few hours:




fun video on sound:








A nice expo on first natives:

2018/10/20 Denver Museum Nature and Science
π 2018-10-20 01:01 in Sciencemuseums
While in Denver, I figured I'd go see the Museum Nature and Science before seeing a few other things that day. Little did I know that I'd spend the entire day in the museum from open to close (09:00 to 17:00).

While the museum has lots of displays, most of them are displays of many animals around the world, and they were surprisingly well made:
















Pikas!

baby birds, so cute

The prehistoric section was well made too:











Also a small Egyptian section:




Also a small section on native americans:


Also a section onthe human body:




Other rooms had very nice collections of crystals:






I didn't have enough time for it, I could have spent several hours there, but they had a special exhibition which was a lot of brain teasers. That was fun, but I had to limit my time there. Too bad it likely won't be there next time I'm in Denver.




And I finished up with teh space section:

2018/10/14 Musee des Arts et Metiers
π 2018-10-14 01:01 in Paris, Sciencemuseums
I can't believe that in all these years, I never went to Musée des Arts et Métiers. It's a wonderful science museum that focuses on machines over the years, and doesn't have the hords of screaming kids, which is a huge plus :)


































Most people don't know that the first heavier than air aircraft was french and dated from the late 1800's. It was however a poor aircraft that was not well controlable, so history didn't remember it as the first aircraft:




More interestingly, the museum is attached to a church was was repurposed as display space:





We ended up spending much longer than planned there, and it was worth even more. Greatly recommended.

2018/05/29 Manila Natural History Museum
π 2018-05-29 01:01 in Philippines, Sciencemuseums
This was our last museum in Manila on our way to the airport. While the building looked quite big at first, a lot of the exhibit floors were not open yet, so we actually got done in 30mn or so when we had 1h. Still what we saw was quite good, although it lasted about as long as the painful line to get in the building, sigh...

line for the security check, then line for signing in, and then line to check in your bag

Another Museum in Manila, worth the visit too.

The Manila National Museum of Fine Arts has a very nice collection on multiple floors which can easily take 3H+ if you do a proper visit:


the likeness is unmistakable :)

2018/05/25 Manila Ayala Museum
π 2018-05-25 01:01 in Philippines, Sciencemuseums
Good collection of gold on the top floor, and very nice diaporama on the bottom floor, showing the history of the philippines. We were a bit short on time, but got to see most of it in the time we had:

2018/05/25 Manila Mind Museum
π 2018-05-25 01:01 in Philippines, Sciencemuseums
It's not a huge science museum, but it was fun to visit nonetheless given that we were nearby:

It was right next to the Google Buildings, and worth 2 hours.

This museum is housed in indeed the old powerhouse/power station, and it's now a science museum with random other displays.


A very cool engine using planetary gears and other steam engines and related hardware:






Transportation:

left over original steam engine that luckily didn't get scrapped like most others
