We need your help! Choose objects for our Cabinet of Curiosities

This is a legacy story from an earlier version of our website. It may contain some formatting issues and broken links.

In Brighton Museum next week we will be choosing objects for our Cabinet of Curiosities display. This will have animals from our Natural Sciences collection and will be on display in Museum Lab. We would like visitors to vote for five key objects to display and help us to decide the stories we will tell. Would you like to see local animals? Or would you prefer to learn about more exotic creatures?

Cabinet of Curiosities in Brighton Museum Lab

Hoopoe (Upupa epops)

Get hands on with our mystery object from a migrating animal and investigate what and where it might have come from. Tell us your ideas and help us to create a label for the display.

If you can help with this, please join us on Weds 24 May between 2-5pm outside the Museum Lab in Brighton Museum. It will be a chance to input your ideas for a display in the museum, and an opportunity to meet museum curators and other staff.
