The Alfred Denny Museum

The Alfred Denny Museum

The Alfred Denny Museum was constructed all the way back in 1905. It contains a number of animal specimens from all over the world, including fossils and material from almost extinct and extinct species.

A very informative museum, perfect for kids, families and couples. A fun-fact about this museum is that it has fossils of a pterodactyl, a flying reptile species from around 200 - 136 million years ago! It also houses other million year old fossils and specimens. 

You can also check out the two handwritten letters from Charles Darwin himself to Henry Denny. Available in transcription, they are at the museum for anyone to read.  

You may also notice the artwork in the beginning of the museum. They've been created by artist Paul Evans, when he collaborated with the museum during a festival.
