Hunterian Zoology Museum

Zoology Museum
In this part of The Hunterian you will see displays on the astonishing diversity of the animal kingdom. Located in the Graham Kerr building, the Hunterian Zoology Museum features familiar animals you may recognise - a 'cuddly' koala in the marsupial display or antelopes herding in the middle of the gallery. There are also less familiar creatures, sponges that look like glass ornaments, worms that live in the gut of a horse and microscopic marine animals. With almost two million animal species described so far (and many more to discover) we can only hope to give our visitors a taste of the range of animal variety.

Perhaps unexpectedly, the Hunterian Zoology Museum also maintains displays of live animals. A small selection of snakes, lizards, frogs and invertebrates are on show.

Open Monday - Friday 9.00am - 5.00pm
