The Royal Greenhouses of Laeken (DutchKoninklijke Serres van LakenFrenchSerres Royales de Laeken), are a vast complex of monumental heated greenhouses in the park of the Royal Palace of Laeken in the north of Brussels. It is one of the major tourist attractions of the city.

The complex was commissioned by King Leopold II and designed by Alphonse Balat. Built between 1874 and 1895, the complex was finished with the completion of the so-called “Iron Church”, a domed greenhouse that would originally serve as the royal chapel. The total floor surface of this immense complex is 2.5 hectares (270,000 square feet). 800,000 liters (over 200,000 US gallons) of fuel oil are needed each year to heat the buildings.

The complex can only be visited during a two-week period in April–May each year, when most flowers are in full bloom.

Le Musée des Cailloux Bizarres, Saitaman (Japon)

thisbelongsinamuseum:

Right outside Tokyo, in the town of Saitama, is a museum called the Hall of Curious Rocks. The museum’s founder was a rock collector for over fifty years. He was drawn to unusual and rare rocks. Ultimately his collection numbered over 1,700 stones, but what makes this museum so interesting is that 900 of them are “face rocks”. This basically means they are unaltered rocks that naturally resemble celebrities, religious figures, movie characters, etc. Of course there are the inevitable Jesus and Elvis rocks, but the look-alike collection also includes Donkey Kong, Mickey Mouse, Russian politicians Boris Yeltsin and Mikhail Gorbachev, Nemo the cartoon fish, and even one that looks like E.T. There are also “chorus rocks” that appear to be singing. So always remember this…Japan’s museum scene has something for everyone, even people who dig curious-looking rocks. Now if only someone can find a rock that looks like Dwayne Johnson aka “The Rock”.
