Here are a few photos from my recent trip to the stunning Museum Koening in Bonn, Germany. The Africa Savanna diorama in the main hall was simply astounding! I highly recommend you visit!

is it odd that I find the birds the most interesting? :P

great pics, it looks like you had an amazing time
I may have to go dig out some old pics of my trips to Monterey Bay and the Quebec Biodome to share if this trend of showing museums/zoos keeps up :D

Still one of my favourite museums (and for a very short time after the foundation of the Federal Republic of Germany, Alexander Koenig's office was used as the office of the first German chancellor, Konrad Adenauer). :) The current director was my PhD supervisor, by the way, he held the chair for systematic zoology in Bochum before he left to Bonn.

Hehe, the founder Alexander Koenig himself found the birds the most interesting, too, he was an ornithologist. :)
