Auckland Museum has this great initiative on, in that if you live in Auckland it's free to go visit. So, while Liz was back we trekked up to the domain and had a look around. I totally <3 the Museum. I love wandering around the exhibitions, particularly the Maori Court section. I'm so in love with the Maori Portraits done by Goldie. Something about them seriously touches home. They are pretty brilliant. I also get a huge kick out of the Dinosaur exhibits. I'm pretty sure they are replicas, but when your standing next them, their sheer enormity is pretty brilliant. Being able to see the difference in skeletal structure between a carnivore, a herbivore. Between a land-based dinosaur and one that swims.
