I'm not sure how many of you remember my appeal to save the beloved Mice Museum that I posted back in March this year.
Well, good news is it's been saved. And that means all of Margaretha Dubach's original 22 display cabinets with taxidermied and skeletal mice telling the story of Otto Maus - who happens to be Hieronymouse's cousin - and the phantasmagoria and nightmares he encounters after being chased away for stealing pudding.

The mice are now in the capable paws of Christian D. Link and the little furry friends are currently on show at Naturhistorisches Museum in Bern, Switzerland, where they will remain on display until January 2012 - I will try to drop by with Hieronymouse himself early next year. He does miss his Emmentaler. And his family.
Details below. For a little video overview (in German) of the original Mice Museum click here.
