In celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Melbourne Cup, Melbourne Museum is displaying Phar Lap’s hide and skeleton together for the first time in almost 80 years. The skeleton is on loan from Te Papa Tongarewa Museum in Wellington, providing a unique opportunity to view this wonder-horse of the 1930s almost in his entirety.
