124 millió csodaszép emlék a Föld életéből – Egy természettudományi múzeum elrejtett kincsei

A múzeumokban mindig az az érdekes, amit elzárva, a tárolókban, fiókokban rejtegetnek, ez általában a kiállított tárgyakkal ellentétben nagyon gazdag és hatalmas gyűjtemény.

A Smithonian Természettudományi Múzeum esetében ez 124 millió darabos tárgygyűjteményt jelent, ahol bálnacsontvázaktól kezdve az ősi kultúrák emlékeiig mindent megtalálunk.
