If you ever find yourself in the county of Kent I recommend to you that you make stopping in to the Powell-Cotton Museum at Quex Park a priority. Inside the beautiful house you’ll find a world of taxidermy and weird stuff that an old white dude collected back in the day – you know the type. All my favourite museums are this kind of museum.
The dioramas are amazing, more like something I’m used to seeing in a museum in America than the UK. Obviously I took these a few years ago and didn’t make any notes (standard) – so you’ll have to go yourself won’t you. I nestle this museum firmly in the category of “small but perfectly formed” – well worth the entry fee, you can easily lose a few hours taking it all in.
Pretty into these rather sinister skull photographs. Straight in the “if I ever make more pouches make pouches out of these” folder.
Thats you that is.
The gardens and house area in general are also very lovely. I’d love to go back some time.
