Our museum holds a huge collection of eggs from a variety of different species.
Egg collecting was a common interest and hobby during the 19th century but concern over the impact on bird populations led to it being an unfavourable past time and eventually prohibited.
These collections provide much scientific value regarding basic breeding biology and are a key resource to examine impacts of global change and the health of local environments. Acquisition of these finite collections are important when the opportunities arise in order to preserve them for their scientific and historical value into the future.
Pictured is one of our many tireless volunteers Elizabeth Newton, who is unpacking our latest batch of eggs into our collections so they can be used for examination and research.#egg #eggcited #melbournemuseum #eggsinmuseums #behindthescenes

A day at the museum 👶🏼

Thanks for having us Melbs, you've been awesome, cold....but awesome. #littleloomloves #melbournelife #melbournemuseum

Before and after sorting! Been doing some volunteering at #melbournemuseum whilst I'm back in Melbourne. I've volunteered there on and off over the years, I encourage anyone who lives near a museum to go volunteer there. Currently I've been sorting some insect samples.

스테이크 구워먹을 때만 해도 분명 해가 쨍쨍 날씨가 너무 좋길래 산책 나갔은데 이게 모냐!
멜버른 날씨 많이 따뜻해졌다고 생각했는데 초겨울 바람과 비가 ☔️ ㅋㅋㅋ 공원에 앉아서 음악 들으려고 신문지도 챙겨 갔는데 이런 똥멍청이 날씨!!

A couple of White's Skinks (Liopholis whitii) enjoying each others company. These two were photographed by @davidandrewpaul, as pictured here this species can either be unpatterned or with two broad, irregular, black stripes enclosing a series of white or yellow spots. @melbournemuseum @museumsvictoria
