In the Gift Shop at the Museum

Yesterday, kerravonsen and I went to the Auckland Museum where we saw a doodlebug, a Spitfire, a torpedo, a gun bigger than Bayban's, three stained-glass windows with a military theme, a creepy gas mask, retro future furniture, a monster ammonite, a Maori cultural show, and some very bizarre gift items in the shop, most of them due to the current Darwin exhibition (I mean, plush Darwins!)

All of my pictures of the above are in this gallery, but here's a selection.

Huge fossilised ammonite--this monster is bigger than me and took three days to uncover.

Plush Darwins! And they all look so unhappy.
