Listen to Lorraine describe displaying the Archaeopteryx specimen.More about Lorraine Cornish
The Museum's galleries have dramatically changed over the last 30 years and many of our scientists have had a significant involvement in transforming how the Museum displays its collections to our visitors. Our scientists conceptualise, design and create exhibitions with a team of people including exhibition interpreters, joiners and education developers.
Their work has ensured that the Museum continues to create exciting and inspiring exhibitions about the natural world, showcasing some of the Museum's most precious specimens alongside innovative learning technology. These short clips show how Museum display is brought from conception to fruition in the galleries.
