It might not be easy being green but do yourself a favour and take a peek inside Froggyland – a weird and wonderful museum.
The Froggyland exhibition consists of 507 (there were originally 1,000) stuffed frogs prepared by master taxidermist Ferenc Mere from 1910-1920.
There are 21 scenes depicting life situations like frogs in school, blacksmith frogs, frogs playing tennis and while the froggies are under glass in large display cabinets, the collection is very intimate and an exceptional example of the art of taxidermy.
The frogs were stuffed using a technique where the stuffing was put through the mouth, so there are no external incisions on the lovable amphibians.
The humor and attention to detail in Mere’s life work is fascinating and dare I say, it is artistic. Froggyland is owned and run by Mere’s family and according to the signage out front is the biggest collection of it’s kind on the planet.
Don’t be fooled – while children will definitely enjoy this, adults will love it too.
