Show 'n' Tell: Australian encounters


Grant Museum of Zoology | Rockefeller Building (link Map)
21 University Street | London | WC1E 6JJ | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Open

We have invited the co-curators of the Strange Creatures exhibition to showcase an object from the Museum’s collection of 68,000 to share their Strange Creatures research. Professor Margot Finn will be joining us after having rummaged through the drawers and cupboards to choose her object. Find out more Margot’s research on the history of Australia’s first European settlers and their experiences of the almost unbelievable world they encountered.

Don’t worry if you can’t stay for the whole hour, doors open at 1pm with the talk starting at 1:15pm and lasts around 30 minutes after which the speaker will be on hand to show you in more detail her chosen object for the last 15 minutes. Stay for the whole hour or just dip in for the talk over your lunchtime and discover the stories hidden away in our collection.
