Behind-the-Scenes Collections Tour (Adults Only): Cabinet of Curiosities
Wednesday, February 14, 2018 05:00pm - 07:00pm 

Did you know the Museum houses over 700,000 specimens in our collection, or that a significant part of the collection pertains to the Greater Niagara Region? Get behind-the-scenes to see what few have seen and explore our research, special, and teaching collections in themed tours taking place throughout the month. Tours are approximately 2 hours in length.

Take a peek into the Vertebrate Zoology Collection's spine tingling Cabinet of Curiosities to explore the mind bending stories of some of nature's unique freaks, morbid mistakes and seemingly scientific impossibilities! Marvel at obscure oddities, glimpse the wildly unusual and satisfy your macabre interests. Feeling enticed yet? We invite (dare) you to join us for a hair raising tour to get an eyeful of all this, and more... You truly never know what you might encounter in the Cabinet!
