Treasures of the Museum
In the space of 150 years, Museums Victoria has assembled a collection of more than 16 million items. In this volume museum staff and distinguished guest contributors have selected objects from the collection they consider to be treasures, explaining their cultural, biological, technological, or historical significance.
What makes a treasure? Every object in this book gives a different answer.
This book presents a fascinating account of the importance of museum collections, but also of the research and passions behind them.
