Created with Museum zoologists, Myths and Monsters explores popular myths and legends from ancient history, Greek mythology and storytelling using astonishing animatronic models, specimens and photography.
Fascinating graphic panels, intriguing specimen cases and life-size animatronics bring to life our best-known ancient myths and offer plausible scientific explanations for them.
This family blockbuster exhibition requires approximately 450 square metres of gallery space and features 5 impressive animatronic models (a dragon, a chimera, a yeti, a cyclops and an alien), and one graceful static model of a unicorn.
Graphic panels tell stories of the giant roc, mysterious sea creatures and more.
