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:

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:

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...

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:

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:

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:

It's a nice museum central to the city with nice animal and mineral collections. It's worth at least 4H for a good visit.

The Hong Kong Science Museum, just across from the History Museum, is a pretty good museum too, although if time is limited, the History Museum is a better bet. Still, they have a great multi floor ball machine:

While in Macau, we went to check out the science museum, and while the building was being repaired after a recent typhoon, but the inside exhibhits were actually quite good:
