About Grant Museum of Zoology

Grant Museum of Zoology is an old fashioned museum packed with specimens, some of which are curious and bizarre. A great place for kids, especially those interested in animals or science.

There is so much to see, but objects to keep an eye out for include Dodo bones, an Anaconda skeleton, the Brain Collection plus a selection of delicate anatomically correct glass models of invertebrates from the 19th century.

Many of the specimens represent species that are now either endangered or extinct such as the Tasmanian Tiger (Thylacine) and the Quagga (a type of extinct zebra).

The museum holds about 14000 different specimens of insect, which have been preserved in a variety of ways, including fossils and pinning. The Micrarium is also worth checking out as it is a place for tiny things, where you can explore and learn about microscopic specimens. Some of the tiniest objects are displayed on wall to wall backlit microscopic slides, something you don't get to see very often.
