A Trip To The Museum...

Sometimes it pays to be in the right place at the wrong time.

Today, at Ryder's request, we headed to the Melbourne Museum to see the Pompeii exhibit. We were there about half an hour early (as I failed to check what time the Museum opened) & we were just being told off by a security guard when a Museum staff member asked us if Ryder would like to have his photo taken for the Herald Sun.

To cut a long story short, we got the opportunity to wander around the exhibition before the Museum opened & Ryder got his photo taken with a man in a Toga!


It was pretty special to have a Museum all the ourselves, although I have a feeling that the highlight for Ryder may have been the bag of goodies that he got to take home from the gift shop!

How exciting! Congratulations Ryder, your famous now!

I'd love a museum all to myself. This is the first I have heard of the Pompeii exhibition. How was it? Wonder if it will come to Queensland? We went to Pompeii while we were in Italy, but I am fascinated by the whole thing. :)

How cool!

We nearly went to the museum when Chris was on leave, but the Reptile Park won in the end! (Can't beat a croc I guess!)
