Specimen wall

These are a selection of the questions on the specimen wall in Investigate. The questions can be investigated through the specimens you will find in the gallery.

Examples:

  • What is a feather's weight?
  • Solid as a rock?
  • How narrow is a hair's breadth?

There are 27 km of specimen shelves in the Darwin Centre - the same distance as between the Museum and Junction 6 of the M1.
