Animal Bytes: Ocean Tales
At the Department of Zoology,
Tuesday 21st October from 7pm-8.30pm
Free, suitable for 12 years +
Discover creatures in the collections of the Museum of Zoology that come from the world’s oceans, through the eyes of the people who look after and study them.
The Whipple Museum and Museum of Zoology investigate Dr. Auzoux’s mysterious papier-mâché models of plants and animals. Explore the ins and outs of these dissectible models through free, family drop-in activities.
As part of Curating Cambridge, we’ll be joining the Fitzwilliam Museum and five other Cambridgeshire museums for a big family day. Join us in creating and organising your own collection by trying various activities spread throughout the museum. What curious stories and connections will you discover between objects and creatures from across the world and throughout time?
Join us for the first workshop of the Museum of Zoology’s Ocean Song: Sounds of the Sea project, collecting voices to create a soundscape for the new Whale Hall. Begin by finding out how animals make and hear sounds and then it’s your turn. Have a go at exploring your voice and creating different sounds for the atmospheric soundscape.
Add your voice to the wind and become part of the new Museum of Zoology. No singing experience necessary, just enthusiasm. This event is part of the ‘Whale of a time: family day’ at the Polar Museum and is supported by Heritage Lottery Fund.
