ExtremesThe Horniman Museum's latest exhibitions takes visitors on an expedition to see how animals and plants survive in extreme heat, cold, dryness and constant darkness or with little oxygen. Extremes features some of the animals that live in these environments and allows the visitors to see films that make them shiver, feel the air-conditioning inside the ostrich's beak, try to keep up with the drinking speed of a camel or see how much fat they have compared with a seal. It mixes hands-on experiences including games and experiments, with films and taxidermy animal specimens.

 

About Horniman Museum

Victorian tea trader Frederick John Horniman collected specimens and artefacts from his travels around the world in the 1860's. His personal collection became the foundation of the Horniman Museum, which is now housed in a Charles Harrison Townsend-designed building. Horniman's original collection included natural history specimens, cultural artefacts and musical instruments. More about Horniman Museum
