Bell Pettigrew Museum

The Bell Pettigrew Museum of Natural History is a rare survival of an Edwardian teaching museum and is open on weekdays from 1pm until 5pm during the October school holiday, from Monday 7 October to Friday 18 October.

The museum presents the animal kingdom through varied displays of:

  • stuffed specimens
  • fossils
  • skeletons
  • corals and shells
  • insects
  • crustaceans
  • scientific instruments.

"Packed full of treasures and wonders, the Bell Pettigrew is a spectacular reminder of how important a museum can be in the study of the natural sciences."
Sir David Attenborough
