Until 21 April 2018 (historic exhibition)


Come face to face with the skeletons of animals from sea, land and air and marvel at real bones, teeth and fossils.

Showcasing almost a hundred different animal bones, this exhibition features complete animal skeletons from a cat, fox and pangolin to fossil fish, the pelvis of a now–extinct Dodo and the skulls of predators like lions and the jaws of sharks.
