At Weston Park you can explore the world and its past, from millions of years ago to the present day. Children and adults will love the animated new displays, specially designed to delight even our littlest explorers. From Egyptian Mummies, to a traditional butchers shop. From Snowy the polar bear, to living ants and bees. The city's amazing collections of beautiful, varied and unusual treasures will be brought to life by fascinating histories, incredible facts and hands-on interactives. Fun-filled, creative activities are available daily for families and school groups. An attractive new café serves fresh and tasty refreshments. All this, combined with regularly changing exhibitions and displays, means there are plenty of reasons to return time after time.
