Prague - A Visit to a Museum

While we were in Prague we visited an museum of anthropology.

They had a really cool totempole at the entrance with animals on it.

There was a special mummy exhibit.
These are fish mummies.

These small statues were placed in a grave with a mummy as people thought they'd act as servants and do all the work for the mummy in the afterlife.

Part of a deathmask I think.

Ok, this has got nothing to do with mummies, but I really liked this sign.

A small statue.

And a real human mummy!

A statue of Anubis

Next to the special mummy exhibit there were lots of other exhibits of which me and my owner liked the Native North American exhibit the most. They had really cool maquettes there.

And this clothing display that's a bit spooky.

They even had a McPig sized cabin!
I thought my owner should get me one of these, but she didn't think so though.

Well, that's all the pictures we took in the museum as the guards kept asking us to show our photography permit, which we had, but they didn't seem to share the news, as each new guard kept interrupting us to ask again, so in the end we got tired of it and stopped taking pictures.

those fish and the mummy are VERY cool, what a fun trip you had. :)

I see you forgot to faint in this museum too. Well, maybe next time. ;)

And your owner should have gotten you one of those cabins.

The cabin is just your size, you may ask your mummy for one like this :)

I like that sign too! That cabin is just right for you! I can image you living in it, but I'm glad that you came back to Groningen. Perhaps your owner can make you one, or perhaps her OH???

Thanks everyone
@Demented Wench: if i had fainted the guards had probably asked me if I had a faint permit ;-)

And my owner doesn't think I need a cabin as she doesn't want me to live on my own and a cabin inside a house is not necessary.
