Naturalis museum in Leiden, reconstruction videos


A museum in Leiden, the Netherlands, the Naturalis natural history museum, has been closed for reconstruction for years. On 31 August it will re-open. Not only the new dinosaur hall with Tyrannosaurus rex Trix will be there. And not only a new hall, called ‘seduction’; about the love life of plants and animals. These videos shows other sides of the re-opened museum. The video on top shows big animals in the collection, like a sunfish.
