the justice & police museum



Woo, more museums! I seriously have about another few museum posts lined up, so sorry if you hate museums, ha, but there's going to be a copule more being posted.

The Justice & Police Museum was converted from an old jail/courthouse/police station, and tells the story of the Australian prison system during the last couple centuries. The pictures above are of a temporary exhibit of Australian celebrities painted in classic crime poses (ie. from vintage book covers and movie posters).

And below are Angie and I posing in the actual courthouse where they sentenced people.


Below, I'm wearing an Avocado cardigan, Zara top, American Apparel skirt, and Topshop loafer flats.


The Museum has an extensive database of information about convicts -- mugshots, what crime they committed, weapons, etc.


Below is us in an actual cell. I'm kind of hoping they had some sort of mattress, because that wooden bed thing was rough.


Some more pictures of the museum section.


The death mask of the (in)famous Pyjama Girl, a murder victim found in a set of Chinese silk pajamas.


The mask and muzzle-thing was a punishment for convicts who broke rules -- it was a way of dehumanizing you and heightening your anonymity so that others wouldn't empathize with you.


And a few last shots of us before we finished for the day...
