Free, no ticket required

Our collections are bursting at the seams with fossils, gems, skeletons and stuffed animals. 

But, unknown to many, we also have a fantastic collection of wasp nests. Join us as we discover more about the much-maligned wasp and take a closer look at these pioneers of insect architecture.

From tiny clay nests to papier-mâché masterpieces, come and see an array of wasp nests from behind the scenes and meet the curator who looks after them.
