New Exhibit at the Milwaukee Public Museum
Last year while roaming the mysterious caverns of the Milwaukee Public Museum, we noticed a full-size taxidermy camel locked away in a dark hallway. What was it doing in there? What were we missing?
It turns out we weren’t missing anything. The camel (pictured in the link) is part of a permanent exhibit under construction that will explore ancient civilizations with reconstructions of temples, Persian soldiers, recreations of priceless Egyptian treasures and King Tut. Check out some behind-the-scenes photos of the project right here.
Milwaukee’s museum is significant as Carl Akeley, the father of modern taxidermy, created the world’s first habitat diorama there in 1890.
The new ancient civilizations exhibit opens in 2015.
