Tickets are Free

Join us for free Visitor Guide led engagement sessions, that will take time to explore some of our sometimes overlooked displays. During each Curious Case session the guide will investigate a particular theme by sharing the facts, stories and linkages within a particular exhibition case. We’ll use the specimens within to guide the chat and open discussion amongst the group. It will be an opportunity to find out more and possibly look in a new way at exhibits on themes such as Fossilisation, Meteorites or Ice Age.

These free adult sessions will take place at 2pm on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday and Sunday of each month. Each week will be a different theme, with Tuesday and Sunday sessions on the same theme and lead by the same Visitor Guide.

Dates and times of the October to December are listed below
