Natural History Museum, Vienna

Seeing the film Museum Hours, which I reviewed yesterday reminded me of my trip to Vienna in 1998. 

The photo below shows the Natural History Museum in Vienna, which is opposite the Art History Museum which features in the film Museum Hours. Shamefully perhaps, I spent so much time in the Natural History Museum I didn't even get into the Art History Museum.

I took this photo while having lunch, with two redstarts playing round my feet. Lovely! Specially as at that time I'd never seen redstarts anywhere and even since have only seen them once in the UK.

I've posted more photos from my trip to Vienna here on my Shapeshifting Green blog

Once a nature lover and it never stops does it Juliet. Your story of the redstarts in Vienna reminded my of two fieldfares pecking round my feet as I sat on a seat in Norway.

Shameful, indeed, Juliet. You must return to Vienna at once. And, while you're there, check out Kunst Haus Wien.

Bill, I did go to Kunst Haus Wien and there's a photo of it on my other blog (just follow the link). I call it the Hundertwasser Haus though in the caption
