Cast Courts 30.10.12

My sister Shannon had been pestering me to take her to London to do some museum wanderings for a while and as it is half term I agreed to go. Reiss came along too and we were originally going to the Hollywood Costume exhibition and Ballgowns at The V&A. However, when we got there my volunteer pass (I volunteer for the Cutty Sark) would only let me in and the others needed to pay £20 each for entry. Clearly that wasn’t going to happen, so we had a wander around the costume through the ages and Shannon snuck round the back of the Ballgowns exhibition and went in for free anyway.

As we were wandering around the museum which has a vast array of items we came across The Cast Courts which I haven’t seen before as they have been closed for renovation. Only 1 side was open but it was so spectacular it really didn’t matter. All of us appreciated theses replicas from the 19th century. The intricate details and unusual animals completely blew me away as well as the sheer size and scale of the casts.
