Got to love some of the wonderful exhibitions that come to Sydney!
The Australian National Maritime Museum is hosting the Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns and Mermaids Exhibition until 23 May 2010 – on tour from the American Museum of Natural History.
Mythic creatures give shape to humankind's greatest hopes, fears and dreams. For thousands of years, humans everywhere – sometimes inspired by living animals or even fossils – have brought mythic creatures to life in stories, songs and works of art... [this exhibition] traces the cultural and natural history roots of some of the world's most enduring mythological creatures, bringing to light the ways in which people have been inspired by nature to envision and depict these strange and wonderful creatures.
LOTS OF MERMAIDS plus sea monsters, rainbow serpents and water dragons!
The Australian National Maritime Museum is located at 2 Murray Street, Darling Harbour, Sydney, Australia.

We've put it into our diaries – we'll make a day of it with lunch at the fish markets down the road. How apt.
