Anna’s Museum is the work of a young natural history collector, Anna, who has been collecting items and things since she was 4 years old. A few years later, she got into taxidermy and eventually became Brighton’s youngest taxidermist.
By her teens, her collection was already impressive, and her parents helped her present her collection of natural history artifacts on a shop window. This is where you can walk up nowadays and take a look at hand-labeled glass jars and wooden boxes filled with rocks, eggs, bones, fossils, and more. There is even a squirrel wearing a waistcoat and holding an egg. We are not sure about the story there, but it looks classy. We read online that this piece is called Squirrel Nutkins!
If you are interested in visiting Anna’s Museum in Brighton, follow the map below. Don’t forget that the window is the museum, you don’t need to knock the door or do anything else. And pay attention to the windows since you’d be forgiven for ignoring it and thinking the Museum is some hip window display.
Also, we found this 2012 interview with Anna and her family, and you need to read it as well.
