EXTREMES of nature and the world’s most hostile environments will challenge budding explorers in a new interactive exhibition in Forest Hill.
The Horniman Museum and Gardens’ family friendly Extremes exhibition opens on February 15 and encourages visitors to step out of their comfort zone with games, experiments and exhibits centred on five environments – extreme heat, cold, aridity, permanent darkness and lack of oxygen.
The activities, specimens, films and photographs explore how plants and animals have adapted to and survive in remarkable conditions.
A polar bear, camel, ostrich, scimitar oryx and pipistrelle bat are among the taxidermy animals on display.
Entry costs £3.30 children, £6.60 adults, £16.59 families.
