Museum of Zoology blog

This blog encourages you to engage with the Museum and with the wildlife on your doorstep. Filled with activities both indoor and out, animal profiles, information about our collections and more, there is something for all the family on this blog.

This blog includes:


Wildlife from your Window  The team at the Museum of Zoology are sharing information about some of the wonderful animals you can see in your garden and from your window. We also have hints and tips on how to encourage more wildlife without having to leave home.

Puggle Club The Puggle Club is our new Early Years page. Each week we’ll post stories, makes and activities suitable for under 5s, and discover animals from around the world with our Animal Alphabet.

Crafty Creatures Get creative and keep boredom at bay with these makes, puzzles and games inspired by animals. From owl masks and puffin mobiles to building beetles and butterfly collages, crosswords to wordsearches, there will be plenty of ideas for crafty fun at home.

Research Stories Find out about research relating to the collections of the Museum of Zoology, and the people working to better understand and protect the natural world.

Plus coming soon - Nature Classroom and Changing Planet will offer resources for primary and secondary school children. 

We would love to hear from you – comment on our posts, or send us images of your makes and wildlife sightings on twitter.
