Freaks of Nature

Join us as we peek inside the Museum's cabinet of curiosities at some specimens that you definitely won't find on display.

Take a peek inside the Museum's very own cabinet of curiosities and you'll find some very unusual specimens including a two-headed sheep, a pig with two bottoms, a striped cheetah and a sperm whale with a lower jaw shaped like a corkscrew. Abnormalities like these have always been of interest to scientists, particularly during the Victorian period when these highly prized specimens were widely collected. Join us as we take a rare look at some of the more unusual specimens in our collection and discover their value to the current collection.
