A thread for images from museums could be interesting.

I'll start the ball rolling.

These are from the Maritime Museum in Kingston-Upon-Hull.

An interior silhouette from an old steam engine. The figure is a mannequin, but my 3 year old son won't go inside this train as he swears there's another man inside it. Spooky.

Nice shots, Ian! Looks like a cool place to visit.

Somewhere, I've got some good images from my visit to Nottingham Castle the other year. I'll see if I can find them.

The Smithsonian is loaded with amazing stuff too, but when we were there last year we were literally jogging through the place trying to see as much as we could so I don't have loads of shots.

Do it! Nottingham as in the evil Sheriff of?

Do it! I've got lots more - The Air & Space Museum in WA, The Country Music Hall Of Fame (it counts!), the Dukes Of Hazzard Museum (ha!), The Willie Nelson Museum (these are just weird) and other odds and ends that I'll post in the coming days once I find the discs they're archived on.
