Cabinet of curiosities

In the cabinet of curiosities you will find all sorts of unusual objects, for example a little dragon or the cast of a giant moose's antlers.

Upon entering, you immediately see the skeleton cast of the pareiasaurus: a herbivore that lived 265 million years ago in South Africa. Also the skeleton of a hippo draws the attention. In the cupboards and cabinets you will find mounted exotic birds like a bird of paradise and an ibis. All these stuffed animals, skeletons, fish, molluscs, rocks, minerals and fossils put on display, make a fine example of an old collection of 'curiosities'.
