Natural Selection Soapbox

Suitability: All Ages

Free. Drop In Event.

Strange insects, ancient fossils, exotic minerals and even coral reef from our own coasts. How much do you know about the hidden depths of the museum’s natural history collection? Through a series of short talks, demonstrations and hands-on activities, our own natural sciences curators will get on the soapbox for their favourite object and will make a heartfelt plea for your vote in deciding what you would like to see more of in the museum. Think of Room 101 in reverse...what should we remove from the dark realms of the museum’s natural sciences collections?
