Exeter Museum

As I said in my last post, Exeter is a combination of old and new ... sometimes within the same space!

Exeter Museum was founded by Prince Albert, and some of the Victorian exhibits are still there, along with modern things.

What makes the museum slightly unusual is that there seems very little order in the layout.  I don't just mean in the order of the galleries, but in the positions of the displays ... for example there is a stuffed giraffe next to a stuffed elephant ... next to a .... Harpsichord!!!

You literally do not know what you are going to see next - anyway, here are a few pictures of my visit.

There were loads more, but that is enough to wet your appetite for a trip!
