Hey, what’s that there on that beautifully laid out table??? A jar of Gympie Bone Museum delicious Flesh Eating Beetles? How’d that get there??
Behold the Rest In Pieces Christmas party table made glorious by Put Your Heart Into It
If you’d like to meet the team from Rest In Pieces and get a look at our old Gympie bones at the same time you can come along to the Art of Taxidermy talk in Brisbane on Nov 18. Or sign up for one of their other workshops. We really can’t recommend them enough.
These bone pens in 5 different skeletal shapes are even better in person than they look in the photos. I ordered 50 of them online and I was so impressed with the quality when they arrived.
They sit really nicely in your hand and have black ink which has made them hugely popular with nurses who need to use black pens on their paperwork.
They’ve been so popular that I’ve had to order more already.
They’re the perfect Christmas stocking stuffer for the lab tech, med student, nurse, science teacher, little learner or special nerd in your life. You can get them online from our friends at Dissection Connection who will make sure every cent comes back to the Gympie Bone Museum project.
I’ve decided that in honor of our resident expert in all things museums, collections and dead things generally – who happens to be an invertebrate palaeontologist – that our first collection and exhibition out to be about those of us that let it all hang out. The invertebrate that have exoskeletons. Who don’t hide their bony bits under layers of mush and muscle but put it out there in glorious calcium carbonate. Here’s a particularly lovely example of an exoskeleton from Plant Presents that lives on my verandah. Plant Presents is another Gympie gold nugget. If you haven’t checked them out already you should have a look now.
Thanks to Gympie Party World our little pop up shop at the Rainbow Beach Spring Festival really looked the part. Working with Gympie businesses like these is going to be such a pleasure.
Gympie is going to be bypassed by the Bruce Highway by 2030. It’s likely that the disruption that is caused by the roadworks leading up to that is going to discourage visitors from stopping long before that. So what are we going to do?
Enter the Gympie Bone Museum Project. Led by a group of innovative and diverse Gympie business people the project intends to bring an innovative science and tourism facility to the town that will attract visitors to the town and give the locals a hub to gather in and use as a meeting place and event center.
This will be so much more than a museum. More than a hall of bones.
