Behind the Scenes at Lates: Spirit Collection
Event type: Behind-the-scenes, tour
Location: Zoology spirit building
Join us at Lates for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum's fascinating zoology spirit collection.
As we explore some of the Darwin Centre’s 27 kilometres of shelves, you’ll encounter numerous treasures hidden among the 22 million animal specimens housed here.
You’ll meet Archie, our 8.62-metre-long giant squid, view specimens collected by Charles Darwin himself and learn more about our cutting-edge research.
This event is part of Lates, where you can explore the Museum's galleries, exhibitions and shops after hours. Don't miss the other great events happening the same evening.
Please arrive at the Zoology spirit building desk in the Orange Zone (via the Mammals gallery) a few minutes before your tour is scheduled to begin.
