I was there in 04, and had no idea that these were there. Is this a recent find?

I really don't know if these are a recent find or not. They keep expanding the museum and they may just be a new addition to the museum. But they told us a lot of work has been done onver the past 4 years, so they may also be new. Sorry I don't know the correct answer.
