At the Museum

Posted on | June 19, 2011 | 9 Comments |

The Auckland War Memorial Museum is a great place. There’s so much to see and do, and I always seem to discover something new each time I visit. I’ve probably gone a dozen times over the years, and it’s always impressive and good at making me think.

I learned when I visited last year that it is not as wheelchair-friendly as it thinks it is. While my brother enjoyed himself, I was totally wiped! Also, it’s remarkably hard to get into the volcanic eruption exhibit with said chair.

I learned when I visited this year with the lovely ménage-a-moi that a) Aucklanders now get free entry, b) it’s possible to find exhibits that you’ve missed on every single other visit, and c) that there are spots where no one can see you, with no apparent cameras. With epically awesome backgrounds! Perfect for a little naughty photography …

The exhibit behind me is The Reel Adventures of Rudall Hayward: A Pioneer of Aotearoa Film. After we’d finished taking photos we sat down, watched the amazing footage and looked at the impressive cameras he had constructed.

 

Naturally when I had the chance I just had to flash my boobs for the Scavenger Hunt! And if you click you can see just what he thought of that …

Hooray for not getting kicked out of the museum! And hooray for getting to spend a great afternoon with a good friend whom I don’t see often enough.

If you get the chance, the exhibit is well worth seeing. As is the entire museum.

Sinful Sunday

    Dee, you continually amaze me with your brazen bawdy. And I love that you’re standing next to the Lady of Cave poster. Perfect!

    Hmmm… seems an appropriate spot to add to exhibit with a little exhibitionism.

    You can see an expression under all that hair?

    Gawd DAMN I looked like a caveman… only without the brawn and animal magnetism

    And parts of this post are suffering from the Not Working Right Nows =(

    DDD – Oh, I like ‘brazen bawdy’ – what a lovely phrase! And yeah, I made sure that Lady of Cave poster was clearly visible…

    Frankie – It helped that it was off a smallish corridor, so it was easy to see if anyone was coming. One person did, and took a lovely photo of the two of us together!

    Clive – He is a sweetie. It was so good of him to take my pics :)

    ménage-a-moi – You were rather bushy, I must admit. But still cute as hell.

    l2l – *smiles* Thank you!

    NIHH – I does what I cans :)

    xx Dee
