Object of the Week – 03/01/13

Happy New Year!

Looking for something to do this Sunday? Come and see if you can find our object of the week…

Object of the week. What could this be?


Did you know what last week’s object of the week was? 

Duckling with four legs

If you’ve ever been to the museum you’ll probably have known straight away what this was.

“Stumpy” the duckling was born in 2007 with two extra legs, the result of a partially divided embryo. He is one of the stars of our display on genetic mutation on the first floor of the museum.
