There are animals everywhere in the museum: in paintings, in sculptures and even in the stair bannisters. This interactive guided tour will introduce pupils to this wonderful bestiary: where are the animals to be found and what stories do they have to tell?
This museum lesson can be supplemented with a workshop: following the exciting animal voyage of discovery, the pupils can make their own fantasy animal using a range of materials. Will it be a friendly creature or a dangerous monster?
