A Whale of a Time

An update from our Orca as he joins the Monsters of the Deep.

Last autumn, our Orca (or Killer whale), Merman and several other objects from our marine collections went on loan to the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, in Falmouth, for their new exhibition Monsters of the Deep. You can read about the start of their adventure on a previous blog post.

The exhibition was due to open this month, and at the beginning of March we received a few images from NMMC curator Sarah Riddle, showing their installation and final display.

Hopefully you agree that they look very nice in their temporary new home. Unfortunately, due to the current Covid-19 crisis, the opening is delayed, but if you are heading down to Cornwall for a much needed Summer holiday, why not pop in and see our holidaying exhibits!
