As part of the Booth Museum closed period, we have been rotating the display heads mounted in the gallery, and replacing those on display with some which haven’t yet been displayed.
These include a tiger and warthog, but one head that has always been too difficult to move, has finally been displayed with the help of staff on site during the closed period.
This is the first time the water buffalo head has been displayed at the Booth Museum since it was originally transferred here from Brighton Museum & Art Gallery in the 1970s.
The picture features VSO Jennifer Robinson and the African Cape Buffalo skull for size comparison! We hope you can come and see for yourself when we reopen this Saturday 12th.
Lee Ismail, Curator of Natural Sciences
