Mu­seum mar­vels

Caernarfon Herald - - YOUR GUIDE -

Tas­ma­nian devil, rhi­noc­eros and hip­popota­mus.

Other ex­hibits in­clude a col­lec­tion of New Zealand birds, in­clud­ing the now en­dan­gered Kakapo, and a Gala­pa­gos tor­toise.

Mu­seum staff will be on hand to give vis­i­tors a rare glimpse at some of its lesser-seen arte­facts and the op­por­tu­nity to learn more about the col­lec­tions.

The move is in­tended to im­prove ac­cess to Ban­gor Univer­sity’s hid­den mu­seum col­lec­tions and is part of the part­ner­ship be­tween Sto­riel Ban­gor and the univer­sity.

Vic­to­ria Rogers, pres­i­dent of the Fed­er­a­tion of Mu­se­ums and Art Gal­leries of Wales, said: “The aim is to in­spire vis­i­tors to learn more about some of the amaz­ing arts and heritage sto­ries on their doorstep through a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ences.

“With half term and Hal­lowe’en co­in­cid­ing with the fes­ti­val, it pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to do some­thing with all the fam­ily, so I’d urge you to check out what’s on in your lo­cal area and get ex­plor­ing.”

The mu­seum will be open to the pub­lic on Satur­day, Novem­ber 3 be­tween 11am and 3pm.

En­try is free and no book­ing is re­quired. ● The Bram­bell Nat­u­ral His­tory Mu­seum is lo­cated at the Bram­bell Build­ing, Dein­iol Road, Ban­gor, LL57 2UW (op­po­site Asda).
