Naturhistorisches Museum Wien

[singlepic id=192 w= h= float=center]

I really like the baroque charm of the museum for natural history in Vienna. This shot was taken in its main stair case. The museums earliest collections were begun more than 250 years ago and it opened to the public in 1889. In science we are very careful about giving credit. At the time of the opening of the museum, this didn’t just mean that your name appeared somewhere on a publication. No, they also put up statues and paintings of the important contributors.
