    What is the mistake in these sentences?

    1.He picked up all the pieces of broken glass and put it in the dustbin.

    2. I love this museum. My aunt brought me to one last week but it wasn't as nice as this one.

    Please can someone point out the mistakes and explain why it's wrong? Thank you.
