The whale is one of the planet’s most magnificent, majestic and powerful creatures and, as humans, we never fail to settle down on the sofa in masses to tune into the latest documentary about these wonders. However, it isn’t all that often we get the opportunity to learn about how these animals grow, feed, sing and survive; and that is why The Natural History Museum’s latest exhibition is a must-see this year.
Taking you on a journey back in time to 50 million years ago, The Natural History Museum’s new exhibition ‘Whales: Beneath the Surface’ is available to discover and explore until the 28th of February 2018. Starting with whales’ evolution and their walking predecessors, this grand exhibition dives you straight into the deep end with over 100 specimens from whales, dolphins and porpoises to feast your eyes on and demonstrate how these amazing creatures became the sociable animals they are today.
Interactive and diverse, the exhibition features rare and outstanding specimens including the entire skeleton of the ‘Thames whale’ a northern bottlenose whale, a humpback whale flipper and blue whale shoulder blade. Alongside these can be found the beautifully crafted watercolour artwork of Sarah Maycock, whose illustrations of different species allow the specimens to come to life whilst offering a multi-dimensional viewing experience of the exhibition. Additionally on offer can be found a whole range of activities for the entire family to enjoy, such as the interactive prey-catching game in which the kids will love to get stuck into whilst learning how whales catch their prey along the way!
Named as one of the “best things to do in London this week” on Culture Whisper with a stellar five star review, this all-inclusive exhibition which offers something for everybody to enjoy is not to be missed this year. So if delving into the world of whales sparks your interests, book your tickets now for ‘Whales: Beneath The Surface’ to avoid missing out.
