ziggycardon posted a topic in A Trip to the MuseumHi everyone Last Thursday I went to visit the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences in Brussels as a little pre-birthday trip. I have visited this museum several times in the past few years, but this time I took my camera with me and thought it might be fun to do a photo tour of the museum for this forum Beware, this will be quite a big topic that might take a few days to complete as I took nearly 750 photo's in the museum (a lot will have to be sorted out though due to blurry quality, photo's of only name tags and doubles) as I wanted to show pretty much all fossil displays Especially the Hall of the Dinosaurs, the hall of the Mosasaurs & The Hall of Evolution will be quite complete tours Starting off with some snapshots of the hall of the minerals. The meteorite display room
ziggycardon posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHi everyone, I was just scrolling facebook a few moments ago and came across a few posts by the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences and saw that there is a new documentary series about the museum itself on Canvas, the series is called "Er was eens" and the first episode that will air today at 19u will be all about the fossil collection including the Iguanodons of Bernissart & Plateosaurus Ben. So maybe a tip for everyone that has the network "Canvas" in Belgium & the Netherlands. https://vimeo.com/297901181?fbclid=IwAR2F5eIbYwzRKCAtfwcYIG8EZsXwZZF2nUhtUPw3dIYAQem_YrSLLP-t3TQ And the museum also posted that the science magazine EOS will do a 82 pages big special on the iguanodons of Bernissart, maybe another tip for all the belgian & dutch member, I'll definiatly get myself a copy!
Yesterday my daughter invited some friends from school for her birthday party, she was allowed to chose where we would go with her froends, and it turned out to be the "dinosaur museum" in Brussels. Here are a few pictures of our visit: Say hello to Iguanodon bernisartensis, one of the 32 complete skeletons found in a mine near the french border. Those 32 specimens form one of the major dinosaur finds in europe. Note that the positions of the specimens are incorrect, they used the skeleton of a kangaroo and an emu as inspiration. This one is in a more natural position: a few more pictures of our visit: Some Belgian Mosasaurs: And of course the compulsary souvenier shop
