Event Details

Our Living World Exhibition is new and is now open!

Explore life from the basic building blocks to endangered species in our hands on exhibits, interactive shows and fun  activities.

No need to book

Today’s shows:

11.00am  Leaves and Seeds

Find out how and why leaves change colour in Autumn, and discover some of the ways the plants spread their seeds in this interactive show.

2.30pm  Same but Different

Meet Darwin and his family – why do they look alike? And how come we all look a bit the same – but different? Look into his famous voyage on The Beagle and how that helped him formulate his theory of evolution. Packed full of fun games and demos, this show gives you a chance to be a part of a 5 billion year old story!

Make something a little different with our activities today!

12.30pm  Plants and Pollination

Find out how plants and their pollinators – often bees – work together to help the plants grow and reproduce.
