Museum of Extraterrestial History
I have curated hundreds of artifacts for this museum and I can finally start to post images before the official opening. Let me give you a sneak peak of the beautiful expositions that we created. Extraterrestrial history is more rich in culture and diversity than we could have ever imagined…
Birds & Butterflies
I am absolutely amazed by the vibrant coloring of the birds and the size of the butterflies! Look at the physical structures of these species! Completely different from the ones we find on earth. It took light years to get them all into one place but I’m so glad we took the effort.
The first time I saw these creatures I wanted to run away. So strange and intimidating. But they are so beautiful. Clearly built for harsh environments with a delicate touch. They are fast and smart. And they seem highly intelligent. I don’t know if they’re friend or foe. What do you think?
Jellies & Fish
I was very excited to see that jellies are living all across the universe. Just such magical creatures! Fish are also some of my favorite species and we have a few beautiful examples in our exhibition. I think that some of them would give our great whites sharks a run for their money…
Years ago I saw sci-fi movies about larger than life insects that would terrorize entire cities. It was comforting to think those were just movies. Until now. These critters are very real outside of our little blue bubble. And the word is that some of them have superpowers like the electric ants for example!
When the samples of flowers and plants came in I was blown away by there beauty. At first we didn’t realize they had day and night cycles. But we discovered soon enough as that day came to an end and they started to glow. This floral pavilion became my favorite place of the entire museum.
The top floor of our museum has an incredibly special exhibition that only allow 8 people at a time. This is where you can see invertebrates at a macro level in VR. We recreated what we think is their natural habitat to really make this come alive for our visitors. I can’t recommend it enough, but make reservations in advance.
We have a great collection of vicious predators that are on top of a few food chains. We haven’t fully figured out who’s on who’s menu but we continue to do as much research as possible. Soon we’ll be able to connect more dots. We’re very proud of our current collection. Young children may find it a bit scary though…
