Last weekend, my mom went with her parents and Caleb to the Milwaukee Public Museum to see the Cleopatra exhibit.
Unfortunately, they didn’t allow photography inside the exhibit, so we can’t show you any of the artifacts! Mom and Caleb said it was really cool. They had huge statues of Ptolemaic kings, jewelry from that time period, and a piece of papyrus that they said that Cleopatra signed herself with ‘make it happen.’
Mom did take pictures of the rest of the museum! She didn’t use any flash and no one seemed to care! There weren’t any signs that said you couldn’t, so we have plenty if pictures to share. We thought we would divide the pictures up into a few posts so this doesn’t get too long!
This is a picture of the Hebior mammoth. It was found in a nearby town named Kenosha. The display says that it was a middle aged adult mammoth. It has butchering marks on the hind legs, and it is some of the first evidence of humans in Wisconsin.
Mom liked his foot—look at those thick bones! It carried him for his whole life 13,500 plus years ago!
We really don’t have much of a plan to these photos, so you’ll have to all bear with us!
