Ever seen a peregrine falcon or a tawny owl up close?
Well now is your chance, because some of these magnificent birds, along with their keepers, will be visiting the Museum for an afternoon.
For centuries, some species of raptor were used as hunting birds because of their keen vision, powerful talons and sharp beaks. Others were regarded as a threat or a menace. Join us to hear members of the Raptor Foundation talk about their birds in real life and in local folklore. You'll find out which of the raptor family was once commonly thought to be a witch in disguise and get a chance to see the birds up close!
We know that this will be an eagerly anticipated event, so we are running three 50-minute session during the afternoon, in order to accommodate as many visitors as possible.
Entrance is free but will be by ticket only to help us manage visitor numbers in the Enid Porter Room. Follow the link for more details and bookings
