Zoology Museum Summer Openings


The D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum is open for the summer season and will be open every Friday afternoon (2pm to 4.30pm) until 4th September.

Come along to see D’Arcy Thompson’s amazing collection of animals from around the world along with models, charts and stunning artworks inspired by D’Arcy’s ideas and collections. Some unusual specimens have been added to the displays this year, including a Tayra and a Rat-Kangaroo. 

We’ve also recently acquired a beautiful etching by D’Arcy Thompson’s daughter Molly (who became an artist and author), which will also be on display. 

There’s also plenty for the kids to enjoy and we’re now an accredited learning destination for the Children’s University, so children doing our activities can pick up stamps for their CU passports.

Please enter via the front door of the Carnelley Building and ask at reception.
