In the growing workload of the second year, it is important to unwind! Although my usual go-to options to unwind are going for a walk or binge-watching something, this time, I decided to go to the Zoology Museum.
It was originally curated by D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson and is a humble collection displayed in the basement of the D’Arcy Thompson Unit. It is a beautiful space that encompasses a diverse collection – right from the beautiful birds to the remains of Artiodactyla. Moreover, there are some beautiful 3D displays of the specimens available online and are worth exploring.
The Museum changes its display throughout the year, allowing the visitors to explore all that it has to offer! (To find out more about this, you can get in touch with the Museum at the link above!)
However, due to the current COVID-19 regulations, one needs to book a ticket online to be able to see the specimens. (So perhaps plan your visit a little in advance!)
I found the visit to be very informative and fun!
So the next time you find some free time, take a tour of the Museum and learn about some interesting new facts alongside the diverse display of specimens!
