The Victorian Museum

Butterfly Collection (1)

Description:
Many early museums were set up as places of study by groups and societys who shared common interests. Academics and ramblers groups interested in studying natural history established many fine collections throughout the country. Collections such as these butterflies were a valuable tool in their studies and they were able to show their findings and theories either in books or directly to a public in lectures or in display cases who otherwise (without modern media such as television) would be unable to have access to these items. Museums nowadays however are sensitive to modern laws protecting wildlife.
