Current ExhibitionWorlds Under Glass: Adventures in Taxidermy
11 August – 23 September 2018

This exhibition explored the history of Taxidermy from its crude beginnings to its Victorian heyday – science, decline and revival.  The exhibition combined examples of taxidermy which could be considered crude in their technique, as well as impressive displays of exotic birds and study skins, to modern examples of taxidermy which captured the character of specimens with incredible accuracy.
