No matter when you visit the Museum, you can enjoy one of the many daily activities. Why not get up close to scientific specimens at special handling stations around the galleries, where knowledgeable Museum staff have exciting real specimens to handle and explore? Feeling adventurous? Younger visitors can pick up an Explorer backpack and take a mini adventure around the Museum. Come and explore hundreds of real natural history specimens, ranging from a shark jaw to a meteorite as old as the Earth, in the hands-on science centre. Families can work together as scientists to investigate specimens, think up questions and discover evidence along the way using microscopes, the computer database and other scientific instruments. And science educators are there to help you with your investigations. All visitors are welcome, but the experience is most suitable for those aged seven and over.
