If you follow us on YouTube, a couple of weeks ago we went to Cambridge to visit some museums. None of us realised just how many museums Cambridge had, but we visited only 3 of them.
The first one we visited was Sedgwick museum, this was extremely interesting. First walking in the girls got so excited as they were greeted with T-Rex. He nearly touched the ceiling and our discussions started with could we imagine if it was alive today! Talks of how it would terrorise the world and people would possibly not be here.
As we continued to look around at the amazing fossils and bones. We then come to the other end to find beautiful rocks and crystals. For Jennifer this was her favourite part of it all as she has love crystals since a little girl. We then arrived at the volcanoes, which had a list of things. For Jennifer and I, we were surprised at how entertaining our conversation was for others within the museum.
“Mum, what is a sulphur pit” Jennifer asked. “Remember in sherk when they are climbing to save Fiona and donkey accuses Sherk of an awful smell. Well that is the lime stone given off the smell of sulphur. Which is the same smell sometimes cars make when their catalytic convertor is starring to stop working”. “Did it really kill dinosaurs?” She questioned as if I know all the answers, my reply was “according to scientist yes the sulphur pits jelled loads of them, but they couldn’t be sure of that really as we weren’t around back then!”
We then visited the scientology museum, again they had the shock factor of a massive whale hanging from the ceiling of the entrance. The volunteers here were fantastic and they really helped us with our knowledge of animals from the passed and present. Our most surprised animal was the giant sloth. This creature stood over 8 foot tall and simple died out through natural reasons rather than anything else.
The only thing for me personally was some of the items were very creepy. We also saw the bones in the whale and dolphin skeletons that showed how they used to walk on land.
Jennifer and Jasmin’s favourite was Fiztwilliam museum, which by this point Bella was too tiered. But they had so many different amazing things it was hard to take in. The best exhibits were Egyptian and the Greek. Jennifer even posed for photos with the items, which for her is surprising!
All together it was an amazing educational visit into Cambridge.
