Fantastic Beasts The Wonder of Nature at Melbourne Museum

I experienced the Fantastic Beasts The Wonder of Nature at Melbourne Museum with my daughter. We had tickets to visit in 2020 at the Natural History Museum in London, however, the pandemic had other plans.

So, I bought the book.

Then when I found out the exhibition was coming to town, I knew we were going to see it. I saw the first movie in the series because my favorite actor is in the movie. Now, that I have been to the exhibition and written this post, I realize the significance of this exhibition.

I thought it wasn't clear about the pictures of cameras with the crosses near some items. I asked one of the attendants for clarification. And, it was those items only that were not to be photographed, and there were about five items. When I came home, I found those items are the book (mentioned below).

I found it warm in the exhibition. So wear layers if it is cold outside.

It is a dark exhibition, therefore check for the social story on the museum website.

Save the Natural World

Then I arrived at the last section of the Fantastic Beasts exhibition. And later I read more in the book (details of the book that accompanies the exhibition are in the shop below).

I realise the overarching theme of Newt Scamander for Wizards and Muggles is to save and protect the Fantastic Beasts. At the exhibition, you can find out which Fantastic Beasts Newt helped rescue.

Together with the Natural History Museum, London is doing the same in highlighting endangered species and saving the Natural World.

They are making you aware of the natural world through the correlation of the Wizarding World and Fantastic Beasts to the natural world. And for you to experience its wonders and make it sustainable for the future.
