'The Imperial Cabinet of Natural Curiosities' you could call it.
Old things in antique wooden cabinets. No fancy remounting here. If they have a Tyrannosaurus rex here I am sure it is still mounted upright, on legs and tail!
(though they do have a copy of Dippy, the Diplloducus donated to them by Andrew Carnegie in 1909.
The museum opened in 1889. Putting it on par with construction of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, in Pittsburgh, which opened in 1896.
There are striking parallels between the monumental architecture along the Ring road in Vienna and the buildings in Pittsburgh.
It was a common era, and there were similar aspirations whether in the West or in old Europe.
