Fake Out!

Don’t let Mother Nature pull a fast one on you. Find out about nature’s fakes. Takes place in the Natural History gallery.

Is this true or are we lying to you? Test your sleuthing skills and try to identify which of the weird and wonderful natural history specimens on display are actually fakes! All will be revealed at the end of the night. Feeling crafty? Make your own monster mashup. Ever wondered if our famous wooly mammoth is real? Take a sneak peak behind the scenes to learn about how museums make fakes. Want to relax a bit? Grab a drink and a friend then head over to a corner table for themed party games.
