The Hunterian Museum's Night at the Museum: Fantasy Scotland took place Friday evening at 7:00pm. The Hunterian is located in the main University of Glasgow campus building and is one of the most beautiful museums I've ever seen.
I showed you Nessie already. Here's the other skeleton that greets you when you walk into the museum - lit up purple and blue for the evening.
The event was sold out, and it was easy to see why. A fun tour of the museum was available with additional fact-finding, such as the Mummy...
and this fun info about Scottish Mummies in particular...
People dressed up.
I loved this woman's ear-decorations, which she found on Etsy.
As for us - our Children's Scottish Fantasy Literature table was next to the Harry Potter table (and the sorting chair, which I talked about HERE).
Here we were getting ready - Debbie, Suzanne, Ming-Leng (is that spelled right?), and me at the top of the stairs hanging balloons.
and geeking-out over the books to share with Dr. Maureen Farrell.
Forget the people, I just wanted to read all night!
Maureen was the hit of the evening as she was very good at reading the new Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - in SCOTS!!! HILARIOUS!! Truly, the evening was a huge hit. And so was my journey home, through the arches...
and down Ashton Lane, all decorated for the holidays. What a lovely evening!
